Perfect Blend - a St. Patrick Day's Card

This card is for my St. Patrick Day's class.  It features the versatile Perfect Blend stamp set, a set rapidly becoming one of my favourites.

The base card is Gumball Green, layered with Whisper White cardstock, the edges of which are sponged with Soft Suede ink.  A strip of Gumball Green cardstock with a piece of Whisper White on top of it provides a base for the stitched satin Gumball Green ribbon and bow.  Again, the edges of the Whisper White cardstock are sponged.  The Whisper White cardstock is stamped with the Gorgeous Grunge stamp using Crumb Cake, and a sentiment stamped using Soft Suede.

Below this strip the sentiment is stamped, and a shamrock is placed in each corner.  The shamrock is made using the Owl Builder punch and punching out 3 hearts of Gumball Green cardstock for each shamrock.

The coffee cups are stamped with Black Stazon onto a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I also stamped one coffee cup on 2 different designs of the Watercolor Wonder DSP, and I cut out the coffee cosy of each one.  These cosies were adhered to a piece of Gumball Green cardstock and trimmed leaving an edge on the top and bottom.
The cups were coloured with a Crumb Cake marker and blender pen, and after the cosies were adhered to each cup, the edges were sponged with Soft Suede ink.
A shamrock was applied to each cup and a rhinestone was placed in the center of each.
The first cup was adhered directly to the card; the second using dimensionals.

Stamps: Perfect Blend, Gorgeous Grunge, Teeny Tiny wishes
Inks: Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake marker
Papers: Gumball Green, Whisper White, Watercolor Wonder DSP
Accessories: Owl Builder Punch, Rhinestones, 3/8" stitched Gumball Green ribbon, dimensionals

What a great card, Maria! I love your shamrocks and the 'coffee' splash behind the coffee cups could have been made by me. I'm always spilling my coffee...LOL!
