Leprechaun Card for St. Patrick's Day

Welcome to the Joyful Stars March Blog Hop. If you came from Jolene's Paper Trail Blog you are on the right track. It is a circular hop so you can start anywhere, but you can find a complete list of blog participants on Joyce's Blog.  Today, I am sharing a card made for St. Patrick's Day.  It was inspired by samples on Pinterest.

It is a standard 5 1/2" by 4 1/4" card   It uses one of the Pocket Cards on the Artfully Sent Cartridge and and many basic cuts from three CTMH cartridges.  The cartridges and cuts are listed below:

Art Philosophy
Pg 41 Circle 3  (scallop circle) cut 2 ¾” in Hopscotch Sunset B & T (hair)
Pg 21 Circle cut 2 ¼” in Colonial White (face)
Pg 21 Circle cut .30" in Black Cardstock (eyes)(Must change the sizing to 1/10")
Pg 21 Circle cut ¼” in Pink Cardstock (nose)
Pg 67 “Accent 2” Moustache cut ½” In Hopscotch Sunset B & T
Artfully Sent
Pg 39 “Icon Shift” (hat, moustache, bow tie) cut 4” real dial size in Topiary CS
(**I did not use this moustache because it was too large for the face**)
Pg 8 “Icon” cut ¾” Shamrock in Pear Cardstock
Pg 8 “Pocket Card”  cut 3 ½” in Pear Cardstock
 Use Alcohol markers GY234 Leaf Green and GY235 Sap Green to draw lines on Colonial White Cardstock.  Cut 1” strips and adhere to bottom of card front.
 Now, it is time to hop on over to my friend,  Krista's Blog to see her creation.  Happy Hopping!
