Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  I'm wearing green & ready for a fun day.  Our favorite pub always has something great going on to celebrate being Irish.  We plan to spend a large part of the day there enjoying the live entertainment they have.  I finally finished my House Mouse card for today.  I decided to make a pop-up card with multiple layers.  After I designed it & got all the measurements correct, I cut everything out.  Then I thought to myself that I could make a cut file for pop-up's on my Silhouette.  Next time...

This card has a double purpose.  I made it for St. Patrick's Day & the House Mouse & Friends challenge # HMFMC140.  It's ribbon & pearls this week.  All of the images are colored with my Spectrum Noir's.  It's the first time I've used my Spectrum's on my beloved mice & they are sooo vibrant.  I have mostly older House Mouse images from Stampa Rosa & very few of them are labeled with anything but a number. Sorry about that.  Here are the colors I used: Faces TN1 TN2 PP2, Maxwell TN6 TN8, Amanda TN3 TN5, Monica GG1 GG2 GG3, Clovers JG1, Flowers PL1 Pl2
