Get Lucky--NON #13--It Ain't Easy Being Green

Hello again! I'm back with another post today for Naughty or Nice's challenge this month--It Ain't Easy Being Green! This was a ton of fun! It was one of those cards that just came together, which was nice since I had major crafter's block with one of my other projects just yesterday. 

I knew I wanted to do something with St. Patty's Day. I've got Irish blood running through my veins, so it just seemed like the natural way to go. I initially thought "leprechaun!" but decided to go with green beer instead :)   

I cut the beer mugs with my Silhouette then colored the beer with Copics. I knew I wanted to go with a naughty card this month and thought these little love struck faces would go great with the sentiment. I fussy cut the beer foam, and I'm not the best fussy cutter in the world, so there are some flaws, and even though they bother me, I like to tell myself that it's OK because it's handmade ;) I didn't have a sentiment, so when this happens, I just jump on my computer and create exactly what I want. It works great! After printing and cutting the size I wanted, I folded the paper into a banner. It's hard to see from the photo, but it has a lot of dimension and kind of bounces off the card. My son picked out this ribbon the other day and I thought it was so cute and perfect for the theme. It was an easy way to add more shamrocks :)
