Celebrate the Occasion Challenge #4

This week at Celebrate the Occasion, the challenge of the week is to make a ST. PATRICK'S DAY project. I cut the four-leaf clover using the Stamping cartridge, but there is no shadow feature available since it's a solutions cartridge. I liked the way the blue made the green shamrock stand out so I cut it just a little bit bigger on the blue and used it as the shadow.

For the paper on the top of the card, I couldn't find one that I liked to match the bottom pattern so I kind of made my own. I used white paper, crumpled it up, then inked it with blue, green, and a little gray to make a shade to match the rest of the card and to give it some texture.

Make sure you join us this week at Celebrate the Occasion for this fun challenge! All you need to do is create a card, layout or project and post it by Sunday, March 13th, 11:59pm (EST).

Have a great day!
