Puppy Presents for St. Patrick's Day



Hi everyone!  This cute image is from Doodle Pantry's new Puppy Presents set; and, for a limited time, this set is "free with purchase" from March 1 through March 24.  Here's a view of what's included: 


For my card, I used one of the outline images included in the set. To dress up the pup for St Patrick's Day, I merged a pre-colored hat from Irish Birdie and some green grass from Cuddly Bear Color. I colored the image with Copics, pastels and colored pencils blended with gamsol. I used lots of different die cuts and added glitter to the hat and clover.  I also added paper piercing and Spirelli string art  to the image prior to adhering to the card's base.  What fun!

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
613 Avenue Create Challenge -- Anything Goes w/Optional Tic-Tac- Toe (I use glitter, digi stamp and green.)
The Corrosive Challenge #169 -- All that Glitters
Paper Playtime Challenge #5 -- Anything Goes

Thanks so much for visiting!  Hope everyone on the East Coast who are expecting the snow storm stay safe and warm.
