Leprechaun Luck



     How about a bit of Irish cheer for today.  I recently won the challenge at 2 Cute Ink with my chihuahua birthday card and got to pick out some images from Heidi's etsy store.  One of the ones I picked was this cute little leprechaun.
     I used a Martha Stewart heart punch to create the shamrock leaves and a piece of string colored with a Copic marker for the stem.
