Add a Shamrock

It's time for a new challenge at Tammy's Scrapin Corner and this week's challenge is to 'Add Shamrocks'.  Our sponsors are SK Digis and Milk n Coffee Digital Stamps.  I have 2 cards and the first 1 is 'Madelin with Retro Outfit' from Milk n Coffee Digital Stamps and I have colored her with Copics.   This image took me right back to the 1970's; I guess that gives an indication of my age.  She was so fun to color and I think I actually owned an outfit just like this only in purple, but I have been loving the green and yellow combination lately.  Back to my card;  I used a couple of dies, the lace oval is from Marianne Designs and the scallop oval behind it is from Spellbinders.  My shamrocks are punched with a Martha Stewart punch.  I really liked the background papers together until the photo was taken and now I'm wishing I had changed my mind with the striped paper but it's done now.

I will be entering the following challenges with this card...
Great Impressions- Going Green
Red Carpet Studio - 2 shades of Green
Marianne Designs - Favorite Colors
Scrappy Frogs - Green/St. Pat's Day
Card Makin Mamas - Green
Glitter and Sparkle - St. Patrick's /Green
Pan Pastel - Anything Goes
Dilly Beans - Green
Simply Create Too - St Pats/Green

And my second card uses this cute 'Snail with Ladybug' image from SK Digis and is also colored with Copics.  I used some papers from Recollections and added a computer generated greeting that is punch with a Stampin' Up punch and the shamrocks are from that same Martha Stewart punch.  This was a fun image that would be great to used for a  kid's card.  

Take at look at Tammy's Scrapin Corner and see what the rest of the DT has created and join in the challenge.  I will enter this card in the following challenges...  Thanks for looking and have a great day.
Gingerloft - The Color Green
Color Me Creative - Anything Goes with Bugs/Butterflies
Kraftin Kimmie - Clean & Simple
