Ready for St. Patrick's Day?

Jackie Payne is hosting this week's challenge over at Stampotique Designer's Challenges. Her challenge theme St Patrick's Day.  Here's what she has to say about her challenge:
"St Patrick's day was lucky for me I married my husband on this date so I would like to see the luck of the Irish in your project, such as lucky clovers.
If you'd like the chance to win your choice of $30 worth of Stampotique stamps, you should play along with this challenge. Visit Stampotique Designers Challenge blog and be sure to read the rules so that you'll have the chance to win that great prize!!! Remember to check to see the deadline for all of this month's Stampotique Designers Challenges!

Here's my card with Gentleman Fox (Kira Nichols) as a Leprechaun.

Gentleman Fox was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (Imagine Crafts), colored with Copic markers, fussy-cut, and edged with a Black Pitt Artist pen (Faber Castell). Several layers of Clear Gelly Glaze pen (Sakura) were added to Gentleman Fox 's eyes, nose, teeth, claws, and vest button. He was then put aside while I created a background for him.

Green cardstock was die-cut with the  Stitched Scene Builder Edger dies (Frantic Stamper). White cardstock was die-cut with the Rainbow die (Die-namics) and the Puffy Clouds dies (Die-namics). Both the clouds and the rainbow were colored with Copic markers. Black cardstock was die-cut with one of the circles from the Classic Circles Nestabilities dies (Spellbinders) and gold cardstock was punched with two sizes of Paper Shaper Circle punches (EK Success). White cardstock was punched with a Shamrock punch (McGill) and colored with a Copic marker.

The scene was assembled and Gentleman Fox was adhered in place. The card front was adhered to a card and I called it done.

Thanks for visiting today!
