Irish Cupcake Ants



Hi All, hope everyone had a fun and happy Valentine's Day.  Today I have a card to share that was inspired by Digital Tuesday Challenge #147 -- use your stash.

 Since I love to mix and match sets, I went through my stash of digital images and found 3 sets ( one old and 2 new) that would work well together to create a whimsical St. Patrick's Day card.  Three different Doodle Pantry sets were used --  image from Cupcake Ants, Clover Patch Ants COLOR Plus digi paper, and a sentiment from Irish Birdie.

The image was colored with Copics, and the cupcake liner was 'paper pieced' digitally.  Before cutting out the image and mounting with dimensionals, I added Glossy Accents to the ants and glitter to the sprinkles. To finish the design I added a flower made with the help of a Spellbinders die and MS clover punch. What a fun card to create!

Thanks so much for visiting.  Hope you enjoy the rest of your week!
