PKS: Monochromatic Sketch Challenge

Evening All...

Here is my submission for Peachy Keen Stamps and the challenge was to create a card or layout based on the sketch given and through in a twist.  The twist was to use a monochromatic color scheme.  For those who are wondering what is monochromatic...the use of tints and shades of the same color.

The color I chose were shades of green and was excited to use my new Cricut cartridge: Paper Doll Dress Up.  I have to admit...Paper Doll Dress Up is a lot of fun to use.  :)

Here's my creation...

Mr. Leprechaun walking down the road to his pot of gold.  ;)

Used gold Stickles in the center of flowers.

I had a lot of fun creating this little guy.

The shamrocks have light green sequins with stickles in the center.
A look down the road.  ;)
