Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

Hello Friends! Surprise! I have a card to share. I just had to color up the adorable St. Patrick's Cupcake that was newly released on Friday. I wanted to create a clean and simple card, just let the image be the star.

Here is what I came up with...

This was such a fun image to color and I tried something new. It really doesn't show up well in this photo, but, after I colored the cupcake with Copic markers, I let it dry for a bit. Then I went back in and colored on some Twinkling H20's. I used a deep green and it added such a wonderful, shimmering sheen to my shadow areas. I love the way it looks! After I die cut the gold glitter paper, I weaved a bit of baker's twine thru the lacy loops and finished it off with a bow. SUPER simple card, with a lot of sparkle. I needed a little decoration for a spot in my dining room and this will be perfect!

If you celebrate St. Patrick's Day, I hope you have a good one! Thanks for dropping in today. I appreciate the visit.

How fun, Barb! Clean and simple is great. Love all the sparkle. Great idea to use glitter paper and then to add the twine in the lacy part. I enlarged the pic to see the twinkling H2O part and that looks terrific as well. Excellent work, my friend!

Super cute card, Barb! I love the baker's twine laced through the die cut - it's darling. Your coloring is lovely as always. Happy St. Patrick's Day to you and your family!
