TCP148 - Get Lucky!


Anyone feelin' lucky? If so, you ought to join in the TCP Tuesday challenge this week from The Cat's Pajamas! The challenge is to create a card for St. Patrick's Day or to wish someone good luck! I kinda' did both with my card!

I got new papers today from Cosmo Cricket, and while flipping through the Social Club Mini-Deck, I noticed the very first page was this awesome green plaid! So I knew it'd be perfect for a card to meet this challenge. I added in some papers from October Afternoon, because... well, because you can NEVER have too much paper, right? I used PJ the Bear from the Honey Bear stamp set, but when I inked him up, I left off the heart on the left side. Then, for a shamrock I used a white Petaloo hydrangea flower, colored it with Copics and secured it with a new gold SU! Glimmer Brad (a little birthday gift from my sweet friend, LeAnne!) Some of that fabulous plaid to paper-piece his belly was also definitely in order!
I used a "good luck" sentiment from another stamp set on a Nestabilities tag, and did my usual ribbon/button/Divine Twine combo to tie it on. Just below the ribbon is the Big Scallop Cut-Ups die.

I hope you like my "lucky" card today! Thanks so much for stopping by!
