Lucky Bird

     I think this will be my last St. Paddy's card, at least the last one which has to go in the mail.  The image is from the progressive challenge at From the Heart Stamps and it was just perfect for one last "Luck of the Irish" salutes.

I also used the sketch I found this week at I (heart) Sketches.

     I colored with my ProMarkers and cut with a stitched die from Lawn Fawn.  The green CS for the mat is also cut with a Lawn Fawn die.  The little dp flags were cut with a die from Spellbinders, and shortened on the back end as needed.  I printed the sentiment and used one of the Lawn Fawn dies to cut it, moving the die as needed to get the narrow flag shape, but the dovetail end was cut with scissors.

     The polka dot ribbon was in my stash and I used the last of it to tie the bow.  I love that particular shade of green and have already begun searching online stores to try to find more of it.


     Happy Stamping and I hope you'll return again tomorrow for the latest challenge at QKR Stampede.   NanaConnie

This is a great card, Connie. Love those little corner banners and the look on this little guy's face. We did not lose our power due to the storm (which kind of fizzled out) but in case I don't get onto here tomorrow I'm sending you Happy Birthday and Happy St. Patrick's Day wishes. Enjoy your special day tomorrow and the weekend.
