Saint Patrick's Day Sassy by Sassy Studio Designs

It's getting close to one of those holidays that can be so much fun but so painful!  I remember in my younger days that I tried to have at least a little bit of green in most of my underwear so if I got wrapped yp with life and forgot about St. Patrick's Day, I'd at least have something with green on!  Now that I look back on it, there's something pretty crass about pulling at your waist just to show off a shade of green on your underwear!  There's just something so classy about showing your panty elastic or your bra strap!  Hey, whatever it takes to keep from getting pinched for not wearing any green!

Well, over at Sassy Studio Design blog, it's Dare to Be Sassy Thursday and Kathy gave us the challenge of Seeing Green for St. Patrick's Day!  I knew exactly what image I wanted to use because this beauty reminded me of the days when I used to go out and really celebrate the Day!


I would dare say that Saint Patrick's Day Sassy is full of green and could hold her own while out on the town to celebrate the holiday!  I used the sketch from Fetch A Sketch and think she came out pretty good.  She's colored with copics and has stickles on her clovers and top, pants, and socks.  I added some Diamond Glaze to the mug and the foam and used my Clear Jelly Roll pen to add some sparkles to the buckles on the shoes and belt and to the bubbles on the mug. The papers are from Recollections and SEI.  The flowers are from Recollections and the branches are made with Martha Stewart punches and her frame is from Nestabilities.  I added some Scattered Straw Distressed Inks around the edge of the frame to give her that golden, pot of gold at the end of he rainbow look.


Isn't she a gorgeous stunner?


I followed the sketch on the inside and here's a couple of peeks of it.


Here's the full biew of the inside.
