TBS DT Luck O' The Irish Week!

Good morning! I'm kicking off Luck O' The Irish Week over at The Beary Scrap DT blog. I've done a wee tutorial on the crackle glass effect and came up with this:

I'd appreciate it muchly if you popped over to our new blog and let me know whatcha think!
 

There are a bunch of tiny blings and shimmers: The Prima wild rose on the top left has been spritzed with Pearl Glimmer Mist, and the pearly pins were colored with a Copic.

I've touched the leaf edges and the very tips of the pink roses with Tea Dye Distress Ink, and the vintage rose die cut is enhanced with Stickles Star Dust.

Susan, what a gorgeous card. I shall have to have a look at your crackle tutorial to see if it should have been as long-winded as it was for me!!!

Thank you for taking the time to enter this into the Crafty Ann's Challenge this fortnight. I was lucky enough to be a Guest Designer this month so I am looking at all the lovely creations and seeing how others interpreted the challenge.

Take care and my best wishes, Kym xxx
