Outlines - Going Green!

Today the Outline's Design Team Challenge was to create a card that showcased the color GREEN. See what everyone else created:  Bev GerardJeanne StreiffLisa SilverRobin Kirkpatrick, Sandy Hulsart and Vicki Garrett.
Our challenge is about the color green this week! I put away the Copics for this card.... yikes. I gold heat embossed the Sketchy Clovers image and watercolored using re-inkers. I tried to do the Shamrocks in shades of the green, making some lighter and others darker. The hat is stamped twice and I cut the second hat out, popping it up using foam tape. I embellished the shamrocks with a Viva Decor Gold Pearl Pen in the center. A little ribbon detailing with a folded and stacked bow, placed above the Martha border punch running along the bottom. I used a touch of Glossy Accents on the hat band to add a little shine.
