St. Patrick's Day Gnome

First, I have to tell you that I gave my boss his Birthday Card today. He really admired it and commented about how beautiful it was, then gave me the biggest hug ever! We had meetings most of the day, and he even showed it to several people who came in for the meetings. Honestly, I couldn't be more pleased!

On to today's card. I wish I could take credit for this, but I pretty much cased a card in the Stampendous catalog. It was hard not to. The card had to be green, right? And they did such a beautiful job. That is WHY I bought these stamps for the store in the first place!
The main image is called Gnome Clover . I stamped it on watercolor paper using Versafine Onyx Black ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder. The stamped image was colored with Tombow markers and a blender pen.

The Clover Border and Best of Luck were stamped with VersaMark ink, then embossed with detail white embossing powder. I added a little Stickles Glitter Glue to the shamrock for sparkle.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate each and every one of you.
