Happy St. Patrick's Day~ Whew got one made!

Happy Wednesday!

I don't think I have every been quite this behind with my St. Patrick's Day cards. I know many don't make them, but I usually make a few for close friends and family. I can honestly say that my 2013 has been a super busy one, so my free play time has been sparse.

Having said that...I have a card I made quickly, and I mean quickly...not 10 minute craft dash quickly, but quick for this girl. I didn't have a lot of spare time, so I seriously rummaged through my scrap pile as I am determined to reduce my load there and here is what I came up with!
I started by coloring the DeNami Designs Shamrock Chickies with Copics as well as colored pencils and mineral spirits. I die-cut them out using Labels 25 by Spellbinders. Next I cut a pennant banner and added it horizontally and layered my Chickies on top. I created a pennant banner at the top in Rainbow colors and tied off with some Green and White Baker's Twine. The buttons are from DeNami Designs   Tutti Fruitti and Sweetheart Boutique Button collections.  One last finishing touch was adding three Prima Flowers with green pearl centers. 

So there you have it folks. I think it took me longer to write the post! 

Further inspiration was found at Playing in Paradise - Green - Lucky or Irish Challenge. Craftin' Desert Diva's- Linky Party! Paper Playtime - Anything Goes

Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!
