Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge #42


Hi Stamping Friends!!
We are "going green" at the Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge this week!!  Have you ever seen so many shades of green shamrocks in your life?!!  So many fun little images!!


Stamps:  Got Treats?, Dot, Dot, Dot, So Happy For You (SAB)
Paper:  Garden Green, Wild Wasabi, Old Olive, Whisper White, Playdate DSP, Garden Green Patterns DSP
Accessories:  Designer Buttons, Linen Thread, Circle Punches, Scallop Circle die, Circle die, White Grosgrain, Perfect Polka Dots EF

Sketch Challenge:  SWEET SUNDAY SKETCH #106

If you've been around my blog long enough, you know that one of my most favorite colors is green.  But this card is green overload for even me!!  Maybe it's the Old Olive that's throwing me off.  But I really loved the pattern in the Paydate DSP and wanted to use it. And of course I zeroed in on the polka dots.  Sometimes I wonder if I could go a whole week without using polka dots.  Nah!!  That would be an awful week!

I really had to get creative with a shamrock image.  I really don't "do" St. Patrick's Day, so I don't have alot of stamps to choose from.  I homeschool my kids and we never really even talk about St. Patrick's Day.  One time I tried to explain to them about wearing green on March 17th or you get pinched.  They thought it was weird.  :)  I kind of have to agree.  I always felt sorry for the kid at school who had to say he was wearing green underwear, just so everyone would leave him alone. 

I hope you will take a minute to stop by the Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge and see what the other design team members have created.  As always, they have done a fabulous job.  They are the best!!  And if you are feeling a little green, (kind of like Kermit the Frog) then play along with us this week!!  Who knows.  You could be our next Party Guest designer!!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!!
