Shopping Our Stash - Challenge #243 - Oh Me Lucky Stars

Hello, Crafty Leprechauns!
Chris is hosting the challenge this week at Shopping Our Stash 
 She has challenged us to:

MAKE A ST. PATRICK'S DAY PROJECT
OR
Use A Charm(s), or Use The Color Green Predominately

  I did not have a single four leaf clover charm and I did not have any St. Patrick's Day themed paper.  So I decided to go with charms and green paper.
I am having a love affair with acetate right now (actually, I am just trying to get rid of some of the acetate packaging I've saved up,) so I decided to create a window and frame my hearts.  I used distress ink to create a watercolor background for my TCW  stenciled hearts, and then used yellow and green chalk on the background. 
The embossing folder is WRMK's Next Level Set: QUILTED
Placing all those beads around the hearts is one of those ideas that seems like a good idea and ends up...well, I just calmed down so I won't go there!

I know we are going to see some fabulous entries.  I hope yours will be in the MIX!

Make sure you stop by and leave a little love for my teammates!


Hugz,
Chana

  1. This is a 'green' card in more ways than one! Love that you're upcycling the acetate packaging and in such a pretty way, a truly beautiful card.

  5. What a lovely card, Chana! That embossing folder is so cool, (and I really want it now!), and even though you were probably cussing up a storm adding those beads, the result was sooooo worth it - Gorgeous!!
