Good Luck!

The Leaving Certificate Exams started today & I wanted to wish everyone Good Luck especially Dee. May you have the correct answers to all the questions you are asked! 

I've been seeing spots and dots all over the place & I wanted to give it a go. For Going Buggy's 'Make a card using one colour', I've used lots of lucky green & a punch-art* four leaf clover.  In total, I've only used 3 promarkers to colour all the cardstock, with some peeled paint distress ink for the stamping. All the green ties in with Fab 'n' Funky Challenges 'Go green!'

Sentimental Sundays have provided a bonus sketch with their 'Show me your SPOTS' theme. I masked the centre of the large circle to create a spotty edge, fully spotted one of the smaller circles & edged the other. A dotty embossed background provide even more spottiness!

*The punch-art is actually die cut hearts:
