Feelin' Lucky? Busy Beauties Go Green Challenge
HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY! Are ya feelin' lucky?
Everybody's Irish on St. Patty's Day, including this Bubbly Beauty featured on my card for the Busy Beauties Boutique Go Green Challenge! You have until midnight tonight to link up your card, so why not play along?
I actually designed this to give to my hubby on our anniversary in May, so my real challenge will be to remember where I hid it when the day comes! LOL! Speaking of hiding, I wanted to hide the Bubbly Beauty in a teasing sort of way, so I used the criss-cross fold and added a piece of scallop-punched vellum to the inside of one of the folded panels. Click on the close-up and I you can see the silhouette of the image behind the vellum. Slightly sexy, yes?
I was happy to see that the cute paper from Kaisercraft I bought for the large owl image featured faint scattered hearts and shamrocks in the background and tiny hearts on the flip side. Sweet! The sentiment is freehand on gold vellum and attached to a glittered-up scalloped Nestie, and I added some gold rhinestone bling to the top of the inside scallop for contrast.
To hold the card closed, I altered a small chipboard buckle and threaded some soft gold satin ribbon through it, and there ya go!
Thanks for visiting! Here's to a totally lucky stamptacular day!
