Happy St. Patrick's Day for WMS Blog Hop

In honor of St. Patrick's Day and Waltzingmouse Stamps, Claire is having a Blog Hop! Sadly the only WMS stamp set I own is one of her Gingerbread sets. I just didn't think a Gingerbread Boy would look enough like St. Patrick to qualify for this -- LOL! So I used this awesome digi image Claire drew just for the occasion. Being short on time, I kept my card quick & simple. After seeing her card, I've apparently colored mine "backwards", as I used darker green at the edges and lighter green in the centers. Guess maybe I'm not nearly as Irish as I think I am? Hee-Hee!!!
Paper: Georgia-Pacific CS (WalMart); double-sided white-core green CS (Costco)
Digi Image: Waltzing Mouse Stamps
Sentiment: Created in Microsoft Word
Embellishments/Tools: Spellbinders' Labels Thirteen & Ribbon Tags Trio dies; Copic Markers: YG06, YG09 YR00, R02, C-1, C-5; ribbon from stash

Gorgeous CAS card. Love that new nestie - great shape - and the best part about coloring is that there are no rules. SO your light centers are simply being kissed by sunshine :-)
