Happy St. Patrick's Day 2018

 St. Patrick's Day is right around the corner and I have a cutie to share with you today. 

I love St. Patrick's Day. It used to be the BEST day to party (and still is for many people- be safe if you will be out celebrating!). But now it's special for another reason. On St. Patrick's Day 8 years ago we found out we were going to have a baby! My husband and I had been through a lot, and wanted a baby girl so badly, and on St. Patrick's Day 2010 our dream became real. 

Enough of sentimental me, and on to the card I've created. 


I usually only make 1 card each year for St. Patrick's Day, and it always goes to my sister. This year I used the image Leprechaun Lass by Mo's Digital Pencil. Isn't she just the sweetest little lass you ever saw? 


The background paper is from my stash (probably by the Paper Studio), and the gold is the Matte Gold Luxury cardstock by Crafter's Companion. I embossed a floral pattern on one piece and I cut the shamrock flourishes on the Silhouette machine. 


I finished her off with a little Glossy Accents on the gold parts and a few enamel dots in the corner.  She was colored with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers (palette and full list below). 


Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers used: 

SKIN:TN3 FS7 FS4 FS2 CR2 
GREEN:DG4 YG3 YG1 
HAIR & GOLD ACCENTS:TN8 TN4 OR1 GB3
SHORTS: BGR5 BGR4 BGR3 

Thanks so much for visiting and have a blessed week.
