Guess what color? Again...

GO GREEN!  Ok, I hid the buttons, but I still pulled out green paper! 

All this green is based on Inktegrity's sketch challenge this week.  Play along and feel free to use any color you would like with this sketch :>)!

I decided to use only sentiments on this one.  The Happy St. Patrick's Day circles and "Go Green" are part of the Inktegrity Peeking Leprechaun digi. I made the circles 3/4" and punched them out to layer over the ribbon.  You have got to love the ability to change the size of digis to match any punch!

My inspiration to paper pierce the shamrock came from the Crazy 4 Challenges blog.  The challenge over there this week is paper piercing, so I pierced away.  To make the shamrock I printed shamrock clip art on white copy paper, laid it over my green CS and then pierced through both layers - such an easy way to make the image and I think it would be a great way to pierce a stamped image too.
May the luck of the Irish be with you today (and Go Green)!
Details:  Stamps - Inktergrity Peeking Leprechaun sentiments (circles and "go green"), CS - SU Wild Wasabi, Ink - SU Basic Black, stash brads and ribbon, and Sizzix Argyle 2 embossing folder.
