The Luck of the Irish

This is my mixed media card for the Green challenge in honour of St. Patricks Day at Crafty CardMakers this week.  I had fun designing my card around Tom Holtz bird crazy stamps. 

I coloured the birds with Copics and created the background with PanPastels.  The rainbow, blades  of grass and pot of gold are rubber stamps from my stash of stamps that I know longer remember where I got them.  I found the St. Patrick's Day digital hats free online and sized them to fit my birds. The sentiment is also a digital image.  

Hope you will join our green challenge at Crafty CardMakers.  Please pop over to our challenge blog to see the beautiful creations of the rest of the design team. 

Thank you for stopping by. Have a creative day.
