Lucky Shamrock

Good morning!  I have a card to share using the adorable Hamlet PigWit, who is From the Heart Stamps March Stamp of the Month.  This set comes with 2 versions; the one I have used today and one with a butterfly and daffodils...both are adorable!

If you played along with last month's progressive challenge, you received this image for free.  If not, there is still time to play along....  You can purchase the image in the shop or if you spend $10 in the shop, you can enter THINKSPING to receive it free.  If you play along this month, you will automatically receive the April image for free.  Sounds good, right?  Right!

I have used the Mojo Monday sketch and kept it clean and simple.  Hamlet is colored with pencils; I have tried to color him as I remember the pigs when I was growing up on the farm.  They aren't really white, but they are not pink either...just a hint of blush is how I would describe them.  I've added just a touch of glitter to a few of the shamrocks and coated the die cut shamrock with glitter.  I like how this simple sketch lets Hamlet shine!
