Shamrock Bear (2 Cute Ink image)

Hello, everyone!  I'm back again today with another card!  I received this adorable little Shamrock Bear from 2 Cute Ink for being one of their newsletter subscribers. I don't usually make St. Patrick's Day cards, but this little guy is so sweet that I just had to get him coloured and onto a card!


Continuing on my quest to use up my hoard of washi tape, I created  a background with various greens and gold. I was inspired by the colours at Your Next Stamp (see below).  Some of the tapes are sparkly - they look fabulous in person!  Like I said, I don't usually make St. Patrick's Day cards so I went with a Just Because sentiment from Serendipity Stamps.  I hand-cut it into a fishtail banner and doodled stitching along the top and bottom edges.  To finish off my card, I added a number of flower sequins - these are new - I found them at the dollar store!

I would like to support these fun challenges:

He is a cute little fellow, isn't he? Great way to integrate the colors for the challenge. Can't wait for my Feb digi images to arrive. A friend is printing and sending them to me. Friends are wonderful! Especially those that understand our crafting addictions!

You did an awesome job getting your washi to go well together...
Your flowers in the both of your corner also goes well with the shamrock...

I have a hoard of washi tape too but I don't have anywhere near this kind of CUTE tape. My tape is lame compared to yours. Obviously I need to double my hoard. This is a really cute card made with a cute image.

MaryH said...

Yay for this one, using up some of the excellent Washi tapes. Really a stunner background for this cute little bear. I'm with P.J.& her excellent comment: I have lots of Washi, but don't think I have a single one of these - and I do need to make a few St. Pat's cards. Won't be what I usually do I am thinking, cause I'm burnt out with the Valentine ones!!! TFS & Hugs
