Happy St. Patrick's Day!

This is the first time that I am using a digital stamp for a card project.  The stamp is from Bugaboo and it was colored with chalks and then mounted on a 3" scalloped circle cut from Close To My Heart retired Kentucky Green.  The shamrock brads came from Oriental Trading several years ago.  I followed the Try Stampin' on Tuesday sketch.  The white background panel was dry embossed with the Cuttlebug Divine Swirls embossing folder.

Here is the Try Stampin' on Tuesday sketch:

I am entering the above card in the following challenges:

Use it Tuesday #52--Diecuts, punches or cutouts
All Sorts Challenge--1 image, 2 papers and 3 embellies ( 2 brads and a ribbon)
Catch the Bug Bingo challenge--(top row across--green, image and charm--shamrock brads)
Tuesday Alchemy--Anything Goes

Using the same stamped image I made a vertical card with a green background panel.  It was embossed and then distressed with my own embossing folder--you can find the directions to make your own embossing folder here.

I like them both--I would love to hear what you prefer--leave me a comment and I will be sure to check out your blog and leave you a comment also.

This is my off week from designing for Color My Heart Color Dare but I would like to invite you to join in on this week's color challenge (Olive, Sweet Leaf and Goldrush):

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great week filled with fun and creativity!
