froufrou: noun

a rustling especially of a woman's skirts
showy or frilly ornamentation
So, here I am again, still working on trying to get 20 St. Patrick's day cards created by the 15th. I would be doing better if I wasn't getting side tracked by Easter cards, lol While I have enough Easter cards, they are just more fun to make...sigh...back to St. Paddy's Day....

I pulled out what's left of my oldest DCWV stack, the Glitter Stack. I don't have very much of it left and it's a good thing this sketch was designed to make ample use of your scrap stash as I had to resort to hunting down bits and pieces to complete a somewhat 'green' card.
I could have altered the sketch somewhat, but I really liked the simplicity of it.
other product used:
Reminisce - sentiment sticker
Pink By Design - Rainbow Challenge
I combined chalk with sewing, and loved how it came out, gives the rainbow a much bigger.
Ranger - stickles
DecoColor - paint marker
pot of gold - hand drawn and cut by me
butterfly die cut - misc.
We are close to the first prize level in my birthday give away, hope you join in ♥

It may be a simple design but you have made it look beautiful. Love that you matted onto patterned paper, it ties the whole thing together so well. Love it. Might have a go at making one like this..... Hugs, Anne x

I love your 'green' card, the papers are really pretty and I like the weaving affect!

Such a great St. Paddy's day card! Love the idea of using strips and weaving them. Very fun (great sentiment!) I am still doing my Valentine's, I see Easter is early this year too. Oh my!
