Froogy Prince

Happy Day My Friends!
Can you believe it is only 5 days until Spring?
I am super excited as I know soon these cold winter days will be gone!!

Today is also the beginning our Dies R Us challenge "Shades of Green".
In the words of "Kermit The Frog" "Sometimes it's not easy being green"!!
which is how I found this challenge..LOL!
BUT, once I got going I found it super easy using some of the wonderful
dies and stamps found in the DRU store!!

and not only is it good for St Patrick's Day...
I think it will make an awesome  graduation card, new job, retirement card
by wishing someone "good luck"!  Plus the fact that I live in "Notre Dame"
country (so to speak), I am sure it will come in handy for me with my boys!!

I cut the panel twice, once in a metallic green, 
and once in a pearlized white paper.
I placed the white panel on a piece of scor-tape paper,
then fit in the green shamrocks like a puzzle.
This took just a few minutes to do.  
When you cut this die, you get an outline
plus separate shamrocks, it's like getting two dies in one!

Once that was done, I added Microfine glitter to the other areas,
just by covering the entire card and rubbing it in good with my fingers.
Then this piece was mounted onto a green card stock.

I am just "getting into" the cute little Tilda stamps and used
I colored her with my Copics and stamped and fussy cut her dress out.
I know it is hard to tell, but her dress has very tiny shamrocks!
I used a gelly roll clear star pen for the crowns,
and colored her shoes with 2 different glitter pens.

I love the sheer white bow with added shamrocks and a flower that
to me, looks somewhat like a shamrock.

I encourage you to head on over to the Dies R Us challenge blog
