Happy St. Patrick's Day

Today was a good day for cardmaking, and leads for a job!  I've been unemployed going on 17-months now so I'm really excited.  I have a telephone interview scheduled for tomorrow, and another interview on Thursday.  Got the first lovely call while I was crafting some cards to share.

My first card is for the DeNami Color Challenge #06, which I combined with Tiffany's Sketchy Sunday Challenge #TG009 and Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge #PWC142

As you can see I went with St. Patrick's Day as my theme.  The DeNami color challenge is perfect for this holiday.

I pulled out my new DeNami stamps, and ribbon.  When stamping the sentiment I inked up part of the stamp twice to switch up the layout for this card.  Copic markers were used to color the chickie, and Lime Green Stickles were added to the shamrock.

Now here is Tiffany's sketch.

Here's a listing of the products used to create this card. 
 - Stamps: DeNami D133 Shamrock Chickie, and F204 Happy St. Patrick's Day
 - Paper:  Paper Studio Ivory Notecard and White Scrap, and Bazzill Navy Blue and Green
 - Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black & New Sprout, Copic Markers G00, G03, G17, & B66, Y00, Y02 & YR12, and the 0.35 MultiLiner SP for the buckle on chickie's hat
 - Extra:  DeNami Ribbon, and Lime Green Stickles
 - Tools:  Cuttlebug, Spellbinders Big Scalloped Circles Nestabilities, Tim Holtz Mini Stapler, Darice Embossing Brush, 3/16" Mini Glue Dots, 1/2" 3-D Glue Dots, and my ATG

Here’s to hoping that my take on the sketch provides you with some inspiration to try some of the challenges going on now.
