Paperbabe Picture Inspiration challenge #69 ~ 50 Shades of Green

Happy Friday..!!

Today see's a new Paperbabe Challenge #69

Using the Picture for Inspiration it's really up to you how you interpret it.

Here's my take on Challenge #69..

Creating a colour wash background using shades from the picture for inspiration 
I used the same colour palette to colour in the Frost Fairy Stamp.

I stamped the largest of the two hearts from the Rabbit Face
Set and stamped four together to create a four leaf clover.

When cut out I used both to cover up those snowflakes.

The whiskers stamp helps break down some of the white area when 
stamped around the edge along with the quote stamp I embossed in copper.

The layers have been machine stitched using a neutral shade of thread
Completing my Picture Inspiration Card.

I do hope you can play along with this fortnights Picture Inspiration Challenge #69..

Wishing you all a fabulous weekend and the
Luck of the Irish for St. Patricks Day.

Also a very *Happy Birthday* to a sweet little Lady
who's special day happens to fall on the very same day..

BIG Hugs
Tracey xx
