Pile It On! Challenge - St. Patrick's Day and/or Shades of Green

This week's Pile It On! Challenge theme is:

'St. Patrick's Day and/or Shades of Green'

Our sponsor for this challenge is:


The prize is a $15 voucher to spend in the wonderful Simon Says Stamp store!

I've used a digi image from Hambo Stamps on my card...he's called 'Monster Sax'...coloured using watercolour pencils. The papers are all BasicGrey...from the 'Marjolaine' and 'Boxer' pads. I distressed all of the edges using 'Pumice Stone' Distress Ink, and my distressing tool...then added faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The stars were cut using my Nesties, and the sentiment stamp is by Studio G.


Here are the challenges I've Piled On:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Pile It On! Challenge.
