Happy St. Patrick's Day! and a green beer card

I used Digi-Stamp Boutique's  Celebration set 'Celebrate with beer' sentiment and stamp for this St. Patrick's Day step card. After all, what's more appropriate for St. Patty's day than green beer?!

A friend gave me a set of Caran d'Ache Neocolor II water-soluble pastels and I used them for the first time coloring this image. I love the bright colors and soft water color look.

  1. I love the bright colours of this as well, it's a fun card! Who knew there was a stamp with that sentiment? I really like the button shamrocks on the front! Thanks for celebrating with us at Opus Gluei!!

  2. Center step cards are so fun. Love the bright colors and green beer!

  3. Really like the way this card sits, and your choice of papers. I love playing with my water-color pencils too but I forget to use them often enough (always get carried away with papers and bling!!) A great green card to add to the collection for our St Patricks challenge at OG this week. Thank for joining in.

  4. Ha ha. This is perfect for my husband but could also be substituted with "Celebrate with Scotch".

  9. What a fun card, great job with the watercoloring. Love your DP and the shamrocks. Thanks for joining us at The stamping Boutique

  10. Oh qu'elle est jolie!! Il faut dire que le vert n'est pas dans mes couleurs, mais j'aime toujours les cartes de Saint Patrick bien vertes!!! Le design est superbe... J'adore!

  11. Wonderful! We don't do green beer at our place as most of our taps are from the real deal, and the others are in that style! This was an easy ( if not entirely lucrative) St. Paddy's ... you know what Western Arkansas is like on Tuesday night! Glad it's over.
