SU Word Play

I like to combine card challenges- it not only double challenges me but also gives me fresh new ideas to use for one challenge that I would not have thought of for another challenge. I was inspired by Jaydee’s shamrock over at The Paper Players this week to create a card for Pals Paper Arts # 153 Sketch Challenge  and SU Only Challenge #65 Going Green. I definitely knew that SU Gumball Green was the perfect color for a shamrock and “lucky” me that SU Print Poetry DSP  paper stack  had 3 designs in that color- perfect for Pals Paper Arts! I played around with creating shamrocks by cutting one out, folding the paper four times and cutting out a heart half way and none of these ideas cooperated with me and looked nice. So, in the end, I formed a shamrock from the small heart in the  Hearts-a-Flutter die set and jazzed it up with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder and a Dahlia In Color button.

    1. Thank You, Heidi. Since I used SU Gumball Green, I did not have any buttons except the dahlia to pick from…in the end, it just became part of the shamrock instead of sitting on it as a button would have done.

  1. Love the three green designer paper pieces on this card, as well as the textured shamrock. Thanks for sharing your project with SUO Challenges.

  2. Very cute shamrock! I love your pattern paper mixes, Thanks for having fun with the PPA this week!
