Maureen is our hostess this week and she has provided a wonderful inspiration picture and sketch for us to work with. Green is my favorite colour so I'm enjoying bringing on the green :)
In honor of Diva Maureen's birthday on Sunday (St. Patrick's Day), shamrocks took center stage. I used the background paper in the picture as my launching point and pulled out some Scenic Route paper that had a similar pattern. Next, I used use Verve's Lucky You set which ever so conveniently has a "lucky you" sentiment, and of course, had to add a shamrock (which I die cut with the matching Shamrock die set). Some yummy, dark brown ribbon added a pop of colour against the green and I just had to add the arrow to reinforce the point of "how lucky you are".
Would love you to join us over on the SCS Verve Forum. As an added bonus, if you get all four of this month's sketches completed and uploaded by midnight CST on Thursday, March 28th, you will be entered for a chance to win a $100 gift certificate to the Verve store! Worth playing for in my books (but then of course I am just a "tad" biased LOL)!
Have a fabulous day and wishing all my Irish followers and any St. Patrick's Day babies out there a fun weekend of celebrating :)
