A Spoon Full of Luck from Alota!

Today is Spoon Day, A Spoon Full of Sugar Day that is and today is a sketch challenge... a sketch by me! I always get nervous when I post sketches to be used in challenges, hope you like this one. The stitching is optional... he he I just got a digital download for my software of stitches and I think I went a bit nuts playing with them.


Now for my card - I have these new wonderful St. Patrick Day images from Alota Rubber Stamps. But I think they can be used anytime you need a Good Luck Card!
The main image is called "Basket of Shamrocks" and really is fun to color. I used my Copics. I picked a few of my new pattern papers from DCWV Nana's Kitchen and then matted them with a reddish orange color card stock. The same as the little flowers in the pattern paper. Everything is sewed down. The sentiment is from my computer. For the "flowers" in the corner of the sketch I stamped out the "Shamrock Frame" and cut out some of them too look as if they were scattered across the bottom of the card. All of the the shamrocks have Green Twinkling H2O's over them, really hard to see in the photographs. But sparkly in person!



I do hope you will be able to join in on this weeks challenge - I can't wait to see how you use my sketch... It is always so fun to see how different it looks! There is also a great prize this week donated by Bryony from Silly Monkey Crafts. So make sure to hop on over to A Spoon Full of Sugar and see just how the other DT used my sketch. I just love these girls and their cards are really wonderful!

Have a great Tuesday!
