St. Patty's Day Cards (MMSC43, C4C27)

This first St. Patrick's Day card is for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. The main image is a Dustin Pike Freebie which is cut out twice to pop up the pot of gold. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up!'s Teeny Tiny Wishes. The base card and matting is Garden Green. The Designer Paper is the retired Darling Doodles. I used GP White and embossed with Cuttlebug's Spots n' Dots and Swiss Dots embossing folders. I used oval Nesties and oval punches. I cut out each shamrock and adhered them with Mini Glue Dots. It's not too busy, is it?
Nothing says springtime like a St. Patty's Day duck!! LOL! This one is for Crazy 4 Challenges which was to us paper piercing in our designs. This is the first time I've done the piercing in a circle! The base card and mat are Glorious Green. The main image panel and white layer are Whisper White, and the square layer is stamped in Glorious Green using the Sprinkles set. The main image is a dollar stamp from Michael's. I cut out and popped up a shamrock on the hat, covering a flower that was there. The duck was colored with markers. Thanks for stopping by!!
