Let's It Hear for the Irish

First of all, I hope you are all sitting down, when you realize I'm posting my Sassy Cheryl's Blog Challenge card on Thursday(only two days after the Challenge start)  instead of waiting until the last minute like I usually do.  Okay now that you've recovered from that surprise, let's get on to the Challenge business.

Sassy Cheryl's Irish colleen, Jackie is the hostess this week for the Sassy Cheryls Challenge Blog.  Her choice of themes is Green, White and Orange in honor of  St. Patrick's Day. Thank you Jackie, for the choice of challenges, since it forced(can you see me twisting my own arm?) to go shopping for some digital papers(I'm always looking for an excuse to go crafty shopping). I found this wonderful kit called Feelin Lucky designed by Crazy 4 Monograms at Just So Scrappy 2.

This delightful image is called Beauty in the Making, and she can be found HERE at the Sassy Cheryls Store. I hadn't planned to use this image for my card, but when I started coloring, all of a sudden she was colored in greens and orange(they actually look like a better match with the paper colors in person). She's colored with PrismaColor and Faber-Castell pencils.

The card is based on this week's Mojo Monday's Sketch. Everything on the card was print and cut (including the stitching on the card) with my Silhouette Cameo, using the   digital papers and and elements from the Feelin Lucky kit.
