Friends and Card Patterns challenges

Hello Everyone and Happy Tuesday. Today I've got 2 cards to share with you. This first one was super simple. It is for the Color Create Challenge this week which was all about using green, orange and yellow. I used for this card SU card stock in Really Rust and my new Marrakech papers from Basic Grey. I absolutely love these, with their Moroccan feel. The stamps I used were the Medallion from the Little Yellow Bicycle set that is in my blog candy (make sure you take a look HERE ). The Friends Sentiment was made by using the JustRite Stamp with Times New Roman Font. These Just Rite Stamps are quickly becoming one of my absolute favorite things. To finish off the card, I used a moss green Grosgrain ribbon and that is that!

Now on to the Card Patterns Challenge. Here is the sketch
I decided to do something whimsical for this one. Since St Patty's Day is approaching, that is where the inspiration came from. For the CS, I used a few different shades of green: Glorious Green, Gable Green, and Green Galore. I also used a matte from the All Dressed Up DCWV stack and a metallic green as well.
The sentiment is yet again created by using the JustRite Times New Roman font set on the Harmony II circle. It means May God Bless You in good ole Irish. I Stamped it using a dark green from colorbox, then embossed it with clear detail embossing powder. The shamrocks on the bottom were colored in with a sparkle marker then shimmerz in celery green was used over top. Lastly a few cute buttons were added and some gold coins for luck. My first St Patricks Day card and so different than what I'm used to doing.
I hope you really enjoyed these cards today. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

Happy Crafting
