Had today off AND hubby was at work - so I was able to spend it stamping - YIPPEE!!!
I hadn't inked up this image yet, and before doing so went for a visit in Anne Ryan's beautiful gallery because I remebered seeing her do absolutely amazing things with this image. So this card was inspired by several lovely Greta cards I saw in Anne's gallery - Thanks Anne!!
This card is for the birthday of one of my new PUNCHKATEER PALZ (March 17th). I didn't have any good St. Patty's day stuff, but did add enough green to Greta's beautiful suite to cover it (I think)!!
This new wonky square Nestie seemed to be made especially for Greta, but has one corner cut off in order to fit onto the 4.5" x 6" card. Greta is colored with markers. The bling is actually irridescent green gemstones - they sparkle in greens, blues and purples and they are specatular IRL!!
Also entered this card in the Tuesday Teapot Challenge - it's the First Annual Teapot Tuesday A-Card-&-Me Awards - How FUN is that??!!!!
March seems to be a popular birthday month for the Punchkateerz - I think I joined this fun little group just in time LOL!!
Thanks everyone for looking!
