The Luck of the Irish - Sweet Stamps Challenge

A very early morning to you all.  Well as we are very nearly in March its time to start thinking of.. you guested it St Patrick's Day. And that brings me nicely to our challenge over on Sweet Stamps which is created a project for St Patrick's Day.  You could have the luck of the Irish and win the $20 spending spree on stamps in the Sweet Stamps online store and if you enter using a Sweet Stamps image your name gets but into the draw twice! 

I wasn't sure what I was going to do for this challenge as St Patrick's Day isn't a holiday that I personally don't celebrate.  So this is what I came up with..
I have painted the back ground paper in a little Creative Inspirations Paint - Winter Frost to give a whole shimmer effect.  The sentiment is one I created on the pc, cut into squares and mounted onto a banner using foam pads 
I love this green satin ribbon, me being me I'm always looking for crafting goodies and this is one I found on my Christmas Cake! I just had to save it! so glad I did as its gorgeous!!

The image is a stamp from Sweet Stamps, this one is called " Leprechaun - 2000"  I was going to colour his mug in black and greys for Gunniness but decided to give in a pint of Ale instead.  The design paper is one I have had for years. Sorry not sure what its called.  The square in the background was cut using Cheery Lynn XL square stackers from Sweet Stamps 
Creative Inspirations Paints are just fabbie and can be used on almost any surface and come in an array of colours.  I used Winter frost on this project.  These too can be purchased from Sweet Stamps..
