Good Luck

A while ago, Mitzi, the genius behind Aurora Wings images, introduced this adorable Shamrock Sprite (Etsy) or (Aurorawings.com) 🙂  I just can’t seem to get enough of these fabulous whimsical little beings!  I do cards for a nearby school’s social committee, and always need good bye and good luck cards at the end of the school year, so I like to be prepared, rather than turning into a crazed card-making machine in June!!  This little sweetie was a perfect image for such a card <3  I colored her up with Copic and SN markers, then added some sparkle with a gold gel pen, and some gold inking on the distressed edges.

You can see the gold sparkle accents in her outfit in this close-up.

I went through my scraps of paper and found a few different greens to layer up on this card.  I swear, the scraps seem to be reproducing overnight, as I thought I would see a lessening in the pile by now!!!  I used some even smaller scraps to die cut a bunch of shamrock leaves, some of which I tied into a bouquet with a small white bow.  For a sentiment, I turned to my Cricut, and the Essentials preloaded cut, and  a piece of gold mirror card.  To carry a bit more shiny gold through the card design, I used some gold studs that I purchased at a local sewing store.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:
