DDC, MMTPT81, and CC....and 3fer!

Today's hostess for the Doubledog Dare Challenge is Joanne (sleepyinseattle) who DARED us to make a St. Patrick's Day card. Easy peasy!!

Inside, it says "I don't look all that Irish!"

Mothermark's Teapot Tuesday teaparty takes us to NO to the Mardi Gras, where masks are the costume of the day. I think this mask is hysterical. I hope you like it.

The Color Challenge today is a pretty weird combination ....... one I would never consider! The two plums, pale and perfect, and Soft Suede. I used one of my all-time favorite images with some markers, punches, pearls, and a shiny satin ribbon.
The designer paper is from Martha Stewart, and came in 18 by 18 sheets, which is gorgeous, but certainly a pain in the **** to cut!!
I hope you like it, and as always, thanks for you comments. Enjoy the day!!

I love that card with the thistle! You colored it so wonderfully with the different layers of the thistle and used the soft suede around it. The pearls line up so beautifully with that gorgeous bow-for such a touch of elegance!

Thank you for sharing. This is my first time visiting your blog!
