House of Gilli ~ Challenge #2

Hello Everyone!  I'm so happy to present my card using Gilli Rockability ~ she's a cute Irish lass today.  We have a fun challenge going on right now at House of Gilli which is to use something green in your project.  I was so excited to make a St. Patrick's Day themed card, and it took me back to elementary school days.  My Mom used to make me, my five sisters and brother the best looking shamrocks to wear.  Her cute shamrocks with faces were made out of fabric; the teacher would always make a big deal out of it, and my face would proceed to turn crimson as the class turned to look.   .....And  now here's my Gilli celebrating St. Patrick's Day fun:

I used the following Copic markers:  skin:  E00, R000, R00, R01 and R20  Dress:  G29, G28, YG17, YG11, YG03  Hair:  E19, E18, E17, E15 and E 13.

I added Star Dust Stickles to Gilli's apron ~ available here.  Her shoes were coated with Diamond Glaze and for her apron and jewelry I used Viva Decor Gold Paper Pen and Peridot Glitter Liner.  My favorite adhesive for paper is the 1/2" Scor-Tape.  After searching the local stores for some carnations to use on my card and finding none, I created some carnations out of tissue paper and airbrushed them with my Copics.  I  hope you come over to House of Gilli for the challenge.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  :)
