It's Supposed To Be Green, But Mine Is Pink!!

Good morning to you all. Today's challenge over at Delicious Doodles is to use green. It was designed to coincide with St Patrick's day, but as I don't have anyone to send a card to, I thought it would be a bit of a waste of card and paper. So rather than sit the challenge out, I decided that I'd make a card with some green on it :)

If you want some St Patrick's Day inspiration then check out the other girls on the DT's blogs, they have produced some awesome projects using some of the images from the Delicious Doodles Shop.

I've used Sweet Shamrock Fairy for my card and have shamelessly nicked the lovely Pascale's inspired idea of colouring the shamrocks a different colour, which means that I can use this beauty all year round!! I decided to paper piece the dress using some papers from My Minds Eye and have coloured the rest of the image with Promarkers. The flowers and wings have been given a coat of Stickles.I've then added some Glossy Accents to her eyes, lips and the flowers in her hair.

The card base has been cut using Large Circle Nestabilities. It's then been inked with Distress Inks and sprayed with Tattered Angels Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist. The flowers have been punched using Nellie Snellen punches and the butterflies are from a Martha Stewart 3 in 1 Butterfly Punch. I've then added some hot pink gems to finish.
