Double D Challenge - St Patrick's Day

Team Diane has a challenge for these two weeks.  She has a great mood board for you and the colors of Green Gold and White.  Let me show you it for inspiration.

I took my inspiration from the colors first ( Green Gold and White)  and I had to get a shamrock in for sure.  That plaid in the top left box was calling to me as well.  I recently watched a video by Debbie Hughes and after watching it, I tried my hand at doing a watercolor background. Watch it HERE

I really liked the results that I got and maybe doing more. Well you be the judge, here is my card.

I printed out the digital stamp from Power Poppy called Wishing on watercolor paper.  Using the colors of green, and gold I colored the design.  The sentiment is from My Favorite Things called Hello, and cut it with a window die. I had to put it on a white oval die cut so that it would pop out more. I wish that you could see the gold in this picture.

There is a prize to a random winner for this challenge. 


Be sure and see the Double D Challenge blog for more inspiration from the rest of the team.

Thanks for stopping in and for the comments that you leave. They are appreciated.
