St. Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day! 

I make, at the most, one St. Patrick's Day card a year... that's if it works out that we have dinner with friends as we often do. So here is this year's goofy edition: 

You'll find the punchline at the end of the post...

I pinned this card last year after Emily entered it into a Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge, because I loved the sentiment! Instead of turning a crazy bird into a chicken, I used this bird from my oldest Paper Smooches set, mostly as it was a good size match to the shamrock. The hat comes from another PS set. I used Twinkling H2Os and plastic wrap to make my marbled green squares. I printed the beginning of the riddle on some patterned paper for a little extra interest. 
I'm entering this in Shopping Our Stash's current Put a Bird On It challenge. 
Watch out for that green beer today! 

*...and the answer is: The CLUCK of the Irish!

Supplies: white cardstock, Strathmore watercolour paper, Authentique Be(you)tiful patterned paper, Paper Smooches Birthday Buddies, A Magical Spring & Lawn Fawn My Lucky Charm stamps, Versafine onyx black ink, Copic markers, Zig watercolour markers, Twinkling H2Os, MFT square stitched & blueprints 24 dies, foam tape

Pin It Now!
