WOW.... Orange and Green for inspiration colors..... Hummmmm  I would of never typically chosen those colors by choice, but the challenge was fun to make me let them work for this card.   Also it gave me a chance to color up this cute little Tilda for St. Patty's day!  PP is by Recollections called "FAR OUT"   LOL  I found the beautiful ribbon at Michaels this week on sale.  My sentiment stamp was also from Michael's $1 bin I think last year.  The Shamrock is by Recollections as well.  Flowers are all from my stash.  Image was colored in Copics and then shadowed a little with Prismacolor pencils.  I used Crystal Effects by SU over all the Shamrocks in Tilda's arms.  The vintage gem pin is by Making Memories.  Thanks so much for stopping by.
