March 2023 Card Chain Challenge Reveal

Hey there friends - it's that time again! We're revealing cards that traveled far & wide for the March 2023 Card Chain Challenge. Thirty-four people participated & you can see the entire chain HERE. My card went to Imke (My Crafty Place) in Germany.

Supplies: Paper - Authentique (shamrock from a 6x6 mixed pad);
Lawn Fawn Beachside (orange grid - retired); 
Neenah white; Paper Studio greens; Spice by unk
Dies - Impression Obsession Fancy Shamrock;
A Jillian Vance Design Stitched Dot Rectangle Backdrop Set;
My Favorite Things Blueprints 2 (retired)
Stamps with Dies - Hero Arts Wisteria HeroScape Bundle (sentiment)
Ink - Hero Arts Root Beer Reactive (to shade circles) & 
Tim Holtz Lucky Clover Distress Ink (to stamp sentiment)

This month we could use:

Color Palette Option

Sketch Option

Theme Options: Irish / Birds / Friendship

Product / Technique Options:  Stamps / Rocker Card

Once again I used the sketch & color option, plus the theme of friendship with a bit of Irish. I stamped the sentiment but everything else was die cut. I was excited to find patterned shamrock paper that had both the colors shamrock and spice (plus a bit of neutral cream). Thought it went well with my shamrock die cut.

I received this gorgeous card from Ella (Moje craftowe przygody) in Germany. I just love the patterned papers she combined with the sweet birds & butterflies!! Thanks Ella and thanks too for the pretty papers you sent - can't wait to use them!!

That's it for today! Thanks for visiting and if you haven't signed up for the April 2023 chain, check it out HERE by April 6th. Happy crafting!!

Going with a shamrock die and printed paper was a great choice for the color scheme and sketch, and it's a very fitting theme for March:)
