St. Patrick's Day Bestie

Hello Everyone,

Finally, I am getting around to posting my St. Patty’s Day card. Better late than never!   I used one of Sherry Baldy’s  cutesy images  for St. Patrick’s Day.  I really love her images, those eyes are so precious they just draw you in. I coloured the image primarily using Prismacolor Pencils.   The layout (or card sketch) was inspired by a 2015 Bestie Card done by The Shabby Pink Stamper.  Unfortunately, I cannot find the card anymore, so I cannot link to it.  I believe her card was smaller than mine.  My finished card is a 5 ½” x 5 ½”.  I left the inside of the card blank.  I took a side view of the card to show the Wink-a-Stella shimmer on the clovers.   I really love how it turned out.
