Louie & Louie Too :)

Good Morning! We have snow on the ground this morning, not alot, but snow just the same :( But I will continue to make spring cards to tell myself that spring will SOON be here :)

This morning we are introducing you to two new sets that are just in time for St. Patrick's Day, Louie and Louie Too. These leprechauns are having so much fun, they just make you smile!!!

For my card I used the "March" sentiment from the March Journaling Spot set and created my own background with it just by stamping it in rows over the base of the card. Then I used some pieces are green shimmery paper from Reminisce (leftovers from my stash). I stamped Louie and the Shamrock in Memento Tuxedo black ink and then colored them with prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits. I added Inkssentials White pen to the hightlight on Louie. I also added Shimmerz in Celery to the shamrock and to Louie's suit so it all shines so nicely :) I cut each of them out and pop-dotted them onto the card for dimension. The ribbon I used is one of our brand new ribbons and it is fabulous!! I love how it coordinates with this card. You can see it here.

See the Shimmerz?? :)

You should jump on over to the 2RedBananas blog to see anther project and to read about the Inspiration Challenge that will be open until Monday, March 2nd at 4pm EST. It's an easy and fun challenge and right now your chances of winning your choice of one of the newly released sets are excellent!

This card is so cute. I love how you used the March stamp for your back ground. And, as usual, your coloring is so nice. I think I need to break down and buy some of those pencils. That ribbon is really awesome, too.
