Whimsical Wednesdays "Getting Sketchy" Challenge







Hello everyone! It's time for a new Whimsical Wednesday challenge! This time the challenge is to follow the sketch to create a card. Our own Nanne created this fabulous sketch this week!
I decided to do a St. Patrick's Day card since that is just around the corner. Plus I couldn't get this cute leprechaun with that oh so funny face out of my head! I just had to make it.... LOL!
I followed the sketch and printed and cut the leprechaun from Simply Charmed using my Imagine and CCR. I did some inking and stamped the face with Peachy Keen's Happy New Year Assortment. I gave him green bubbles because he's been drinking some green beer! LOL! Some of the pattern paper is cut printed from the Blossom cart and the poka dot's I stamped. The shamrocks were cut from Paper Doll Dress Up and I stamped the face with the same PK set. To finish I did some doodling on the cuts and stamped the sentiment which is from Whimsical Designs Whimsical Fun Vol. 1.
I hope you all will play along this week and don't forget to check out what the rest of the DT has created. Have a great day and thanks for looking!
I am going to enter this into a couple of challenges:
My Craft Spots Monday challenge which is " Make Us Laugh"
Krafty Girls - St. Patricks Day Theme
Little Scrap Pieces- Use green
