MC Mar/13 - OLW - May the Wings

Well since there are quite a few challenges calling for green or St Patrick's etc, figured I'd get one done. BIG GRIN

Card is 5.5"w x 4.25"h, white cardstock. I masked off the edges (right and bottom sides) and stamped the tulip image (gg designs) with Versafine Black Onyx. Colored them in with Prisma colored pencils (oranges, yellows & a touch of pink) and a Lyra Splendor Blender.

Stamped the quote (Quietfire Design   "Butterfly Circles" May the wings...) with the black and clear embossed.

Drew in the green outline border with a Zig Writer, allowing some of the flowers to protrude...

Stamped the Best Wishes (Quietfire Design "10 tiny sentiments")
Used a Quickie Glue pen on the butterfly in the quote and sprinkled with Glitter Ritz micro fine glitter "Peridot"

Punched out some shamrocks and sponged Distress "Peeled Paint" over them, then stuck a few in amongst the tulip leaves. Used the same green to sponge around the edges of the card.
