I was inspired to play along with today's Splitcoast Free for All Challenge, Got a Lucky Penny?--to use your good luck charms, greens, and leprechauns for this challenge. The timing on this challenge was just right--I won't need many St. Patty's cards, but I've only made one so far this year, and we are less than two weeks away! And I decided that a St. Patrick's Day card would be the perfect opportunity to play along with the new Play Date Cafe challenge: "Player's Choice" Color Splash Week! The idea is to make a black and white card with just a splash of a single additional color, and this week we get to choose whatever color we'd like. Obviously, I chose to add a splash of GREEN!!
I used two little shamrock charms from a bulk bag of pastel-colored buttons that I purchased several years ago. I arranged three green heart-shaped gems and a bit of green embroidery floss as a third "lucky charm."
Here are the challenges I incorporated into this card:
- The Play Date Cafe: Week #71
- Card Patterns Sketch 104:
- Paper Sundaes Challenge: Use a Charm
- Delightful Challenges: Welcoming Spring
- Cute Card Thursday: Signs of Spring
- Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge #42: to be inspired by the colors and theme of this photo
