Timeless Tuesday ~ Go Green!

Hello everyone!  Happy Tuesday!  Welcome to another fabulous "Timeless Tuesday Challenge" with Flourishes.  With St. Patrick's Day just days away, our hostess Deborah Anton thought that creating a card or project using the colour green (FTTC211) would be perfect for this week's challenge.  And I agree!!  Here's my green creation for our challenge this week...

 An Irish Blessing
A began by creating my card base using Flourishes Classic Ivory Cardstock.  I die cut a variety of different shapes for layering too.  

I then stamped the gorgeous Oxalis bouquet from the "Irish Blessings" stamp collection onto the same cardstock using Memento "Black Tuxedo" ink.  I backed my ornate lacy circle die cut using some beautiful "Primrose" ribbon from the "Sunflower" Color Made Easy collection.

I coloured my stamped image using the following Copic Collections
YG01, YG11, YG13, YG13, YG93, W-1 & W-2

I even decorated the inside of my card.  I stamped a variety of the clover images from the "Irish Blessings" stamp collection again.  I used the vibrant Memento ink, "Bamboo Leaves".  Even the inside greeting is from the fabulous "Irish Blessings" stamp set.

Thanks for joining me today. Come along and play with us this week!  Let's see a little GREEN on your cards and projects this week.  Link up your creations to the Flourishes blog for a chance at winning a little guilt free shopping!

Now, take a gander at what my fellow Timeless Tuesday designers have created for this week's challenge…
