First St. Paddys day card

This saucy little Irish girl was a very generous freebie from the stamping chef  on the condition she was made into a card for St. Patrick's day.

She was so much fun to colour with my promarkers and I wanted to make her the main focus of my card. I made the frame using my cameo silhouette (frame purchased from the silhouette store) and some green glitter card, it was so easy to do and took a matter of minutes. To finish off the card I used a very lightly patterned green paper (after some hunting in my stash-I really must sort my paper out) for the background and coloured some white card candi with my gold promarker to match the coins in her hat.

Over all I'm happy with how the card turned out and am going to pop it into the post today to a dear friend (thankfully its not a bank holiday on Monday in England or it would have been late!)

I'd like to enter the following challenges please:- this challenge is called Sham-rock around the clock, love it :-)

Here is Miss Maggie enjoying Crufts last week 

An Irish Blessing

May you always have walls for the winds,
a roof for the rain, tea beside the fire,
laughter to cheer you, those you love near you,
and all your heart might desire.

Happy St Patricks Day xox
