ATS; Thank your lucky ......................

Over at the ATS Challenge this week the theme is Green for St Patricks so we are to use all things Green.
The stamps I used here are from CC Designs it's Sweet November Sparkle Thistleweed, I coloured her with Copic markers, she is so sassy even without and pink she still looks amazing .
I used Tim Holtz distress ink Forest moss on the edges of the mats and on the flower which I cut using one of the new Tim Holtz flower die and a few pages of a book I bought especially for cutting up in our local 99p shop, in the middle of the flower to keep the layers together I put a Making Memories Fabric button brad.
The butterfly and the sentiment stamp are both from Stampin'up as is the punch used to cut the sentiment.
I zig-zag stitched the edges on my sewing machine to add the final touch and frame the whole thing nicely, Hope you like it.
Before I go I just have to ask you have you seen the new Limited Edition Swiss Pixie Kit #1 that Christine at All That Scraps on line shop has on on offer at half price just $45 and to the UK with shipping works out at just under £40 which is a fantastic deal as there is so many stamps in the kit, of course I've got mine already .......how could anyone resist these cuties !!! Hope you all have a lovely day ..............catch you later

Paula Gale said...

Love this card and image susie - just one thought - did you make sure that the book didn't have any rude bits in before you made the pages into flowers - when I did this, I had to check for racy bits, even though it was a Jane Austen novel... LOL!!!
