The Luck of The Irish!

I needed a good luck card for a friend so the free digi image from Dude Time Doodles was just the ticket!

This is Shamus Shamrock!
Shamus loves to dance jigs, drink fine Irish Whiskey and flirt with the ladies. He seems to have the luck of the Irish about him. He'd like to know if you want to come out to play among the clover and rainbows with him......
For a chance to be a guest designer on their DT for April, pop on over to the Dude Time Doodles Challenge Blog to find out what you have to do!
I followed the sketch from Sketch Saturday  for the layout for this card!

The image was coloured using promarkers the cut out using nesties on the Big Shot! The papers I used are from Robyn's Fettish & are called Coney Island Summers

I embossed the matt which is lightweight card using a cuttlebug embossing folder. I did the same to the green layer at the side & the matt for the sentiment too!

The sentiment was computer generated, I used a corner punch to give a bit of detail! The ribbon has been in my stash for ever! I had loads of it in all different colours!
Thanks for stopping by, I do hope you like him!
