Double D - St. Patrick's Day/All About the Green

Dear Ones~
This time over at Double D we are celebrating St. Patrick's Day. Lots of possibilities with this one. Here is the Mood Board for our inspiration:

And here is my card:
I was inspired by the plaid in the upper left corner. I have had this Hops Power Poppy stamp set for awhile. I thought this was a perfect time to use it, as on St. Paddy's Day the beer flows freely. I had fun painting it with my Arteza Watercolors. The greeting is computer generated. I had to look it means TO YOUR HEALTH!!! My wish for all of you, dear readers!!
Here are the ingredients:
GKD Ivory Card Stock
Tim Holtz Gold Card Stock
SU Country Club Patterned Paper
Power Poppy Hoppy Day Stamp
SU Ornate Frames Die for Greeting
Concord & 9th Layering Leaves Die
SU Gold Pearls
Arteza Watercolors

 If you head on over to the  Double D Challenge Blog and play along, you could win this adorable die set by Cottage Cutz. And don't forget to check out all the beautiful cards the other designers have created for your inspiration.


So that's it for me, thanks for stopping by. I adore your comments, they always make me smile. And don't forget to stop over at Double D and see what's going on.

Until next time, here's celebrating your Creative Muse.  SLAINTÉ!!!!!!
