Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: A Bit o' Green Card using Tim Holtz's Noble Gent Stamp Set

 With St. Patrick's Day upon us, this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge theme is "A Bit o' Green."  Can you spot my nod to the holiday?

I started by cutting a rounded rectangle shape with a die set from Avery Elle (Pierced Rounded Frames).  I stamped some circles onto it (courtesy of Darkroom Door's Open Circles stamp set) and painted them green.  Then I stamped one of the noble gent images onto a piece of Tim Holtz Backdrops paper (volume 4).

Next I cut a frame out of Dina Wakley's Collage Sparks book, collection 3.  I also cut a hat out of Vicki Boutin's Warm Wishes paper and stamped the word "imagination" onto a piece of paper.  The word was curved in the stamp set, but you can usually bend and straighten out a curved stamp long enough to stamp it straight-ish.

I added more colors and scraps to the card.  Since I wanted it to have a St. Patrick's Day vibe, I drew a clover and cut it out.  Then I noticed that I had a stamp that said "clover" as part of the Concord & 9th Swatchbook stamp set, so I added that on as well.  Done!

Here are the supplies I used that you can find at Simon Says Stamp:
