Top of the morning to ya! It's Monday! It's time for another challenge on the Outlines Challenge Blog. This week our challenge is the theme of St. Patrick's Day. I guess you can say we're going green. Make sure you play along with us this week for your chance to win a $25 gift certificate from the Outlines Rubber Stamp Company.

For my card this week, I couldn't resist using this awesome image from Outlines called "Sketchy Clovers" (H-1018). I stamped it onto X-Press It cardstock with Marvy black dye ink. I colored the image with Copic markers (the clouds too were made with Copics). I then framed the image with black cardstock and white cardstock. The card panel is made from a piece of patterned paper from The Paper Studio. I paper pierced around this panel and used a white Prismacolor pencil to faux stitch. A strip of rainbow patterned paper (sorry, source was a scrap) was added along the near side of the card. Clear green and light green buttons were added to the card, along with a bow made from Peapod Green Baker's Twine.

I hope you will take a look at what the rest of the design team made this week. You'll be seeing green.

I thank you for visiting my blog today. Making this card reminded me 'tis the season for Shamrock Shakes at McDonald's. I do think I'm going to go indulge in some minty green happiness in a cup!
