Cheery Lynn Designs Happy St. Patrick's Day

Sandy here with you today for Cheery Lynn Designs, Leslierahye is having technical difficulties.  Our challenge theme this week is Celebrate and since it is St. Patrick's Day, I thought I would join in the fun.  Using my French Flair Stackers, I created a white easel card.  Using green card stock, I added a Horizon French Flair Boutique layer to both the front and the base of the card.  Next came a DP panel, cut with a coordinating Silver French Flair Stacker.  Using green card stock again, I cut a Horizon Circle Boutique layer and another DP panel using a coordinating Silver Circle Stacker.  This was the perfect backdrop for this fun Leprechaun from Karen's Doodles. To create the panel across the center of the base, I used my Horizon Rectangle Boutique die.

For my flowers I used Tea Rose Small, Tea Rose Medium and Sweet Christine flower strips.  I die cut one strip of each.  Using a black Micron pen, I added some veins to the petals and then added green Distress ink.  Using a stylus and an embossing mat, I added some shape to the flowers.  Then I stacked the Tea Rose medium and small to create the larger flowers turning them so the petals do not line up.  The single blooms are the Sweet Christine petals.  I added some green Stickles to the centers of the flowers.  The leaves are part of the tea rose dies. 

Lastly, I added Celebrate to the center panel on the base.  Finished size is 5 5/8 inches square.  Be sure to check out this week's Celebrate challenge for a chance to win a $20 shopping spree at Cheery Lynn Designs.
