Cool Beans.../PS Sparks Designer Draft Challenge

Good morning and Happy St. Patrick's Day! Time for corned beef and cabbage, and green beer! LOL! Today I'd like to share a card that I made using the sketch from Paper Smooches Sparks - Designer Draft Challenge:

and the inside:

Here is the sketch:

Yeah, I put my own spin on it! I used a bunch of Paper Smooches stamp sets for this card. I also did some masking for the sentiment. And I used scraps too! Woo hoo! That scrap pile is slowly getting smaller! I stamped the bunny twice, in pink and white, cut out the teeth and adhered. After stamping all the jelly beans I took a gray marker and drew some shading on them and the bunny, then fussy cut everything. I had a happy accident with the masking. I left a couple little black spots under the word 'cool', so I just covered them with the rhinestones. And the best part? Those gold glitter shades on the bunny!!! ACK!!! That's one cool bunny! Elton John eat your heart out! LOL!

That's it for now. Thanks for stopping by and have a great St. Paddy's Day! Erin Go Braugh(less)! LOL!
