Just Buggin Go Green

This week our challenge was to create something green for St. Patrick's Day. I thought I would try and use one of the adorable princesses found on the Once Upon a Princess cartridge and turn her into some kind of St. Patrick's Day Fairy (those exist don't they?). I just a pack of some cool shimmer paper from Die cuts with a view and that is what I used for all of the princess (fairy)

except her skin. I put a shamrock on her wand and added a shamrock hat from Designers Calendar. The card base is cut from A Child's Year (this cartridge is full of fun card bases for all occasions) and I used the Bazzil swiss dots cardstock for that and put some more of the green shimmer paper behind the shamrock cut outs. I gave the princess some wiggly eyes, with eyelashes of course, and stamped a nose and mouth from my peach keen face sets. We would love to see your St. Patty's Day creations, so head on over to Just Buggin and show us what you come up with.
