CES Challenges DT Card.........

Good morning peeps its me again....just when you thought it was safe go into Blogland I re-appear with my 2nd post lol.
This one is completely the other end of the scale from my first card this morn.....check out my Sweet Pea Steampunk creation here.
This post is for CES Challenges & this week our lovely Sandie has chosen the theme which is
'St Patrick/Good Luck'
So we would love to see any of those type of cards, obviously not all of us know people who we could wish happy St Patricks day to so thats why we are giving you the option of Good Luck as well.
I have gone for Good Luck for my card & whats more I've dug out another un-inked stamp, I am doing well lol. I was hoping my new stamps would of been here for this card but instead I got one of my hAnglars out she has been waiting for ink for soooooooo long.....so finally here she is...
warning photo heavy lol

For this card I followed Rach's fabbylicious sketch over on Friday Sketchers.....I must say I soooo enjoyed doing this card I could of done it again after lol.........is that sad of me?

I made a tag type of sentiment by stamping on some of my seam binding & attaching it to the matting of the image......I love that little bit actually lol.
She is of course coloured with Copics colours used are....
E000,E00,E01,E11,R20
E77,E57,E33,E53
RV29,RV34 & W5 for shading
Little bit of C1 on the white to add bit of depth
I also added 2 pink pearl gems from my stash to her ribbons on her hair.

Stitching is faux I ran it all through the machine without thread then added the stitches with my silver/grey sakura pen as I couldn't find my light grey thread grrrrrr....never mind I'm still pleased with it lol.

The button is from my stash & the bottom flower I made using a magnolia doo hickey with the DP I've used. The doily was also from my stash & I used pink A4 card for matting.

The gorgeous lace is from Wild Orchid Crafts.
The scalloped card, card candy, smooth white card for stamping, Prima flowers, bakers twine, hat pin & Memory Box-Gossamer papers are all available at Crafty Emma's here.

Inside has also been deocrated exactly the same using the sketch I was going to put a piccy on but I think there is enough on now lol.
Well thats it from me but do please pop over to see my fabulous teamies creations cus they are truly stunning.
We are looking forward to seeing all of your creations this week the more the merrier but please stick to the theme or your entry will get deleted to make it fair for others.
Pop on over to Emma's shop she has some gorgeous new things in including the new Whiff Of Joy stamps & papers, I've ordered mine, so get 'em while you can
