You're My Pot of Gold





Wow, time is flying by! Can you believe its already time for another Marvelous Monday at Shelly's Images?

This week, at Shelly's Images, we are thinking green! St. Patrick's Day is fast approaching, so we just had to feature a new St. Patty's Image! Today, we are featuring Pot 'O Gold. Just perfect for your St Patrick's Day cards, isnt it?! Even better, it is available, today only, at a special price, in Shelly's Store. Check out the other wonderful images, too, while you're there!


For my project today, I challenged myself to make a St Patrick's Day card for a friend. Do you think this is a nice St Patty's Day card for a guy?

I can't believe I've never done a St. Patty's Day card, before now! I found some clover paper in my stash that I didn't realize I had, so it worked out perfectly. My image, of course, is the featured image this week at Shelly's Images, and the sentiment is a freebie that Shelly gave away on her blog, along with a 4 leaf clover, on Friday. (If you hurry, you can still pick those up, too!) The image is colored with Promarkers. Card layout is the sketches at Dude Time Doodles and In Style Stamps.. The clover ribbon is from my stash. I found it on clearance last year at Walmart for 50 cents a roll and bought 4 rolls of it. (Can't resist a bargain!) The round Kiss Me I'm Irish seal and the clover embellishments are from Recollections and are mounted with foam tape for dimension and 3D effect. The sentiment is mounted with foam tape, as well. An opaque white pen from Inksentials was used to add the faux stitching. I used a clearstar gelly roll pen to add glitter and sparkle to the rainbow, the coins, buckle, clover and handles on the pot of the image.
