Sketch Saturday #403

Good morning sketch fans!  We have a fun new sketch for you along with a new sponsor...Simon Says Stamp!  Here's our sketch:

I realized that St. Patrick's Day was almost here and I had yet to make any cards!  How could that be?  I whipped out one of my favorite characters...Changito!  (I use a lot of digis and I have to say that it was fun to break out the ink and actually stamp an image!)  The image is colored with pencils and I've added some subtle glitter to the shamrocks.  I've done some simple layering and embellished the card with a row of brads...I like how the black "pops" against the green!  (When I was uploading this, I was wondering if I should have went with a white card base?  What do you think?)  Here's a close-up of the sparkle:

Image/Sentiment: Stampendous
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Signo Black Gel Pen
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, New Leaf, and True Black CS, Lawn Fawn Patterned Paper
Embellies: Spare Parts Brads, Martha Stewart Crystal Fine Glitter
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone
