I just can't seem to put Rubbernecker's  Jessica sku 237-02 away!!  She colors up so beautifully!  I was inspired by all the shades of green in the photo so voila Jessica is Irish today!   I colored her up with Copics and added some Stardust Stickles to her hat, necklace and belt.  I used this Create an Extra Layer Spellbinders Tutorial  to make the mega Classic Oval by Spellbinders fit on my card base. 

I created a shamrock by placing Score tape on card stock, peeling the backing off and burnishing in Lime Green Jewel Glitter Ritz with my finger. Brush away the excess and punch out some hearts and the stem was made with a small oval punch, you could just hand cut the stem. I hope you join us with your own creation!

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day Everyone!!
