♥ Simon Says....A Bit O' Green ♥

This week's challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog is sure to get you green with envy!! Just make any type creation with green on it! It can be a St. Patty's Day card or whatever you like!

This week the SS DT are featuring products by Hero Arts! I chose to make a cute little shamrock out of some stamped little hearts from Hero Arts Buttons clear stamp set. I just stamped 4 hearts, cut them out, glued them together at the bottoms and then added some chunky glitter and a piece of twine for the stem.

I also used a sentiment from another Hero Arts Clear Stamp Set called Essential Messages as well as some Hero Arts Light Green Accent Pearls.

There are also some Spellbinders Dies on there as well, Scallop Circle Dies and Labels Twenty Dies. And lastly, to finish it off, I used some ribbon, trim and papers from the new Dear Lizzy line, Neopolitan by American Crafts.

As always, Heidi will generously give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Good luck everyone!

Have a super fabulous day!
