Green St. Patrick's Day Card

Welcome to the Mark’s Finest Paper’s Color Challenge, where this week we’re featuring shades of green.

For today’s card, I found an adorable little face that I just couldn’t resist!  This cute little hippo is a cut from the Silhouette store called, “St Patrick’s Day Hippo With Pot Of Gold.”  I just fell in love with him!

I also used another cut called, “Lucky Tickets.”  I made two rows of them to use for my background.

I used a sentiment from the Mark’s Finest Paper’s Fairies stamp set and punched it out into a star shape to attach to our hippo’s pot of gold.  I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder for some texture and popped up parts of the ticket, the hippo, and the star for some extra visual interest.

Happy Scrapping!
