This card was inspired by the Sparkle and Shine Farm Fresh challenge on the Splendid Stamping blog for Greeting Farm Stamps AND the Diecuts, Punches & Cutouts challenge on the Use it Tuesday blog.
Just about all of the supplies I used for this card are old (with the exception of the yellow Copic markers I just bought last month to try my attempt at blonde hair). I literally had to blow the dust off my Creative Memories Heart punch (poor neglected lil' guy) to make the shamrock. The papers are scraps from a stash that I used for my sister's wedding a couple years go. I embossed a couple pieces for some texture using the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots and a Basic Grey Sizzix embression plate. I die cut the pretty lotus background using a Spellbinders Pendant die I have never opened (and sadly, I have owned that die for over 2 years). The sentiment is from a stamp set from Papertrey Ink, and the adorable Princess Anya stamp is from Greeting Farm stamps.
The sparkle gems added just the right touch :) I sure hope my mother-in-law likes it!
Thanks so much for stopping by for a look-a-roo!
