St Patrick's Day!

Thought I'd share this little St Patrick's Day card with you!

It's a little scalloped easel which I cut out using my nesties on the big shot.
It was super speedy to make!
The image was a freebie from My Grafico He's called
Cute Leprechaun & was designed by Tainted Sweets!

He's such a cutie don't you think?
Now I was doing this card in a hurry & forgot to check which paper was in the printer. It turned out to be matt photo paper. I'd never tried to colour an image with promarkers on this type of paper before so I ran with it! Don't think it's something I'd do again as it wasn't as successful as other papers I've tried & I think it takes a lot more ink!

As this card was small, I used lightweight card for the base. I then cut out smaller circles from DP's these were from Robyn's Fetish & the collection is called Coney Island Summers
The greeting was generated on the pc & cut out using a labels nestie.
I cut out the image & mounted him using foam tape & did the same for the greeting which is acting as the stop for the easel.
