Just Us Girls #282 Photo challenge

Hi!  We are doing our best to hold up through the cold, but it's fun to create with beautiful green!  We sure won't see green grass for awhile!  Anyway, Vicki has a great challenge for us this week! See this phot below for inspiration!  So many possibilities! And more inspiration on our blog:

 As I said, I wanted to use the green from Vicki's pic, so I did!  I went with a general St Patty's Day themed card, but used the dots and the gold in the photo as inspiration for my image and card.

This is Whipper Snapper Designs O'Leary. I colored him with copics.  My beary is made furry by putting some colorless blender on a 'loopy' washcloth and dabbing it on the colored image. It lifts the color out and leaves the fuzzy look! Love that technique! Try it!
My card base is Leaf Green (PTI) stamped in Damask BG from MFT.  The limelight banners (MFT) are cut with an MFT die and stamped with Impression Obsession's gingham background as well as a dotted BG from MFT.  The rounded focal image is an MFT die.  I used a gold strip beneath my ribbon to represent the gold of Vicki's photo.
We sure hope you'll join in this fun challenge this week and upload your card to our BLOG by Thrsday Mar. 4 @ 9 ET
I appreciate your visit!! Cheryl
