Lily Pad Cards- Virginia's View Challenge # 3

Happy St. Paddy's Day Everyone. **said in my best Irish accent** :o)

Hopefully you are wearing your green where you won't get pinched - Or maybe you do :o)

Today - I wanted to share with you a card I am submitting for the latest Virgina's View Challenge.  It caught my eye with the inspirational photo with all the color!!  You all know I love color!  It makes me happy!  I used my new stamp set from Paper Smooches called Debonair.  I love all three of these images - but the diamond pattern is my favorite.  I just imaged this stamped several times in a border filled with color.  I, then stamped the banner image from Lawn Fawn's Bannerific.  Then I took the I love you sentiment from Say Cheese, and broke up the sentiment to fit the banner.  Since the photo had buttons, I added buttons to the corners to coordinate with my ink colors ( all from Memento ink), and the same with the Bakers Twine from The Twinery.

I am also literally submitting this into the Paper Crafts Magazine Stamping Royalty Contest.  It is one of 4 cards I am submitting.  Ever since I found out about this contest 2 years ago - I've wanted to enter.  As nervous as I am, I wanted to give it a shot.  You never know until you try!

Hope that your weekend is fantastic where ever you are in the world!!  Make it great!!
