I am SO Irish!

Today's card is celebrating the day that everyone has a little Irish in them - St. Patrick's Day.  😀   Edward Elephant #1 from Sparkle N Sprinkle is available in both rubber and a digi version.  For my card today I used the digi version and after printing it out, colored him with Copic markers.

Elegant Emerald and Misty Isles glitter accents the greens and Celestial glitter was added to the gold coins.  The pot of gold is covered with Neon glitter - Exhilarated Green.  I added a very light layer of brushable glue to the pot of gold so some of the details from the image would still show through the glitter.

The chicky is covered with flock: Sun Dazzle for his body and Paprika for his beak.  A bit of Elephant Gray flock was added to Edward's toes.

Nuvo Gilding Flakes (Sunkissed Copper) makes the buckle on Edward's hat shine.  Pan Pastels were used to give a touch of color to the dry embossed background layer (Sizzix - Damask embossing folder).

The sentiment, which is part of the set, was printed and added to a strip of white cardstock outlined with Misty Isles glitter.  Pan Pastels were added to the sentiment itself for a bit of color.

The card base edges were covered with 1/2" Tear-ific Tape and then more Elegant Emerald glitter was added.
