St Patrick's Day Card

Each year I make a couple St. Patrick's Day cards to send out, and here's one from this year. I used a pre-colored digital image and enhanced the colors with Copics, adding some Glossy Accents to the shamrock and some Dazzling Diamond Stickles to the beer suds. I added a die-cut Taylored Expressions shamrock to the bottom left corner for a little bit of extra luck. The papers are both digital prints that I thought looked good together and it's all on a Wild Wasabi card stock base with black mats on the designer papers.

Here's a close-up of that detailed beer mug.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #187 - add a shamrock/clover

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

You did a great job on combining the papers and that image says it all. I can't tell if the beer is green or not with that lovely sparkly foam. This is a fun card to celebrate the day.

LOVE this card, Carol! It sits on my picture table surrounded by little shamrock LED lights I have laying on there. I love the glossy parts on it and of course the mug of beer! Your cards always make me smile! Thank you for thinking of us! Hugs~

The sparkly foam and the glossy shamrock are spectacular. Sorry I was too wrapped up for the holiday, this year. All around great card!
