A "Wee One" for St. Paddy's Day

Can you believe tomorrow is the first of March? February has come and gone! I promised earlier I would post a new Tilda on my blog. Well... my new card is not a "Tilda" but she is a member of the Magnolia stamp family. This cute little "wee one" is Alva and she is actually an elf. I've decided to reinvent her for St. Patrick's day and change her into a leprechaun. I was in Michael's yesterday and picked up this cute shamrock paper which led to this design. I used PTI cardstock and my cuttlebug for the background. The butterfly was punched with my MS monarch punch. Copics were my choice for coloring - they just work so perfect for these stamps! Green stickles bring out the butterfly and the shamrocks around Alva.
Please leave a comment and let me know how you like her! And have a great weekend!

Marsha, I just love Alva. She is so adorable. Great job coloring her green. I think it's hard putting a mainly green card together.
