Magical Monday - 1, 2, 3 ~ Create!

Before I get to today's post, I wanted to remind/let you know that I have a blog candy drawing open until Tuesday night (March 23rd). See the bottom of this post (click on the link to take you there) to find out what you need to do to enter.

Welcome to another edition of Magical Monday at There's Magic in the Air with Paper Cupcakes! This week your able to use any image available in the Paper Cupcakes store or the free image available at the TMITA blog. This week's challenge is by Olga Jewell and she wants "1,2,3 ~ Create." That is to use 1 Paper Cupcake image (your choice), 2 ribbons, and 3 buttons. I used the image "Sammie Shamrock" and yes, I know, St. Patrick's Day was last week, but he's just so darn cute and I didn't want him to get lost in all the other green creations! So some deets: he's colored with my trusty Prismacolor markers, I made a mask for him and then sponged the crushed curry around him to give him a "glow," and I also sponged the grass with wild wasabi. I found the quote on-line (sorry don't remember where). Here's the inside:

And here's some other challenges for this one:
1. Bee Crafty - Spring + a digi
2. Crazy 4 Challenges - Spring
3. digital tuesday challenge - make a St Patricks Day OR a card with lots and lots of green + a digi
4. OCC Weekly Sketch - sketch
5. PaperPlay Challenges - Good Luck/Thank You
6. Rosie D’s - Green, Yellow and White
7. Simon Says - Show us your greens!!

Well, I hope this inspires you to play along with us at TMITA/PCC this week and just to entice you even more, here's what you could win!
Beautiful and in my favorite color too! Thanks for stopping by and can't wait to see your magical creations!
