KISS ME, I'M IRISH.....

Well not really, I'm not Irish at all, but tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day and I wanted to share a card with you I really had fun making. Here is my card.


This card just makes me smile, it's a CASE from THIS CARD I saw on Pinterest a very long time ago, I just fell in love with this sweet little guy made with punches. I don't do punch art at all and I admire people who have the ability to see the endless possibilities for creating awesome cards with punches that have nothing to do with the original intent.
The eyebrows, mustache and nose of this Irish Gnome are made with the Bird Builder Punch, the eyes are two black candy dots, the 4 leaf clover on the hat is made with a little heart punch, I applied some stickers for a bit of shine. 
It's smile is done with a black marker, I made the bow with some ribbon from my never ending stash.
That's it, super quick and cute, don't you think?
Here is a picture of the finish inside of my card, I made a point to do this to save time when it's time to mail my cards.

I'm sorry to say I have no St. Patrick's Day sentiments except for the one in the Teeny, Tiny Wishes from SU so, I looked for some other that would look good for this card and I found this one that is so old I don't remember where I got it. 
I'm submitting this card to the SHOPPING OUR STASH challenge, they are asking to make a card with St. Patrick's Day theme or just use a charm or the color green predominately.
The Get Creative Challenge #34 with a theme of St. Patrick's Day.
And the Incy Wincy Design Challenge Shades of Green.

Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
