Kiss Me, I'm Irish

I've been playing in the current Progressive Challenge in the Sandra Caldwell Stamp Fans Group on FB and today is the last day.  Nothin' like cutting it close, eh?  Well, I did have an idea, and then changed my mind, remembering a fun card I did back in 2014 using a tutorial from SplitcoastStampers.  The cute potted shamrock image, called Love the Irish #213, was free for those who played in round 2 of the Progressive challenge and is currently available at half price if you want to join in.  You better hurry, though.  Today is the LAST day!

My camera battery bit the big one, so I don't have a pic of what I did to make the stamp stand up, but if you're interested, click HERE to check out the previous card I did in this style.

Here's the card lying flat, though.  Love the Irish was printed 3 times, colored with Copics and fussy cut.  The shamrock and heart were edged with Stickles and popped and layered 3 times, the little ladybug's hat, pot rim and label, twice.  The gold coins were cut and embossed with the smallest of the Nesties circles and I've added some epoxy shamrocks (one even with another  ladybug) and a pair of lips for embellies.

The cool thing is that it all folds up (reasonably) flat to fit in an envy for mailing.  WooHoo!

I'm also entering this in the DL.Art Frogs and/or Use the Color Green Challenge , the DL.Art February Linky Challenge and Simon Says Wednesday ATG.
