It's easy being green...

at least it is if your one of the wee folk, and Tangle Goblinshimmer can prove it. :)

Top o' the mornin' to ye!
Heeheehee ok so I'm getting a bit carried away with the St. Patrick's day challenge going on over at ATS this week... though my Irish brogue could definitely use some work. ;)
Good thing a cool accent isn't a requirement, this week it's as simple as using the color green on your card. You say you don't have any St. Patrick's Day stamps? That's not a problem either... like I said we just want to see you go green... easy peasy!

For my card, Tangle let me know that she felt like dancing in a clover field and I thought that sounded pretty good too. So I stamped a border of shamrocks and then cut petals off those green Prima hydrangea flowers to make them look more like clover too. Add to that a bit of subtle clover paper and Tangle was more than ready to hunt down that lucky four leaf one. ;)

This week the challenge prize is a $15 gift certificate to the All That Scraps store! That's a pretty cool incentive to play along if you ask me... especially considering all the great product Christine carries besides the awesome stamp selection. If you haven't taken the time to check it out I highly recommend you take a look. :)
Remember that in order to be eligible to win, your card must include a stamp that is sold in the All That Scraps store. Whether it is any of our wonderful in house designs or from the various other stamp companies that ATS carries, the choice is yours. Then be sure to link up your creation with Mr Linky by next Tuesday at 10pm est and only one entry per person please! I so cannot wait to see what everyone creates this week!

TTFN!
