Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge featuring TPS Japanese Cute Doll

Hello and welcome to Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge!!! Hope you're all enjoying your week so far!  This week has started out a little crazy and hectic at work for me but hopefully it will be "smooth sailing" the rest of the week!  I can only wish, right?!!! LOL  At least the sun is back out with warm weather and my son, Ryan had an awesome game last night. Even though I only caught the last half, I was able to witness their team victory! Go Texas Rangers!!! :)

So this week's challenge is a St. Patrick's Day theme or to use the color Green.

Our wonderful sponsor is The Paper Shelter!

Here is my card...

I just love The Paper Shelter digis and when she was provided to us as one of the samples, I couldn't wait to use her on my project!  She is called "Japanese Cute Doll" which fits her perfectly!  I loved pairing her up with my Graphic 45 Bird Song papers.  I have been hoarding these paper for quite some time (as I do with all my G45's!) but I thought it would be a perfect match so I gave in! LOL  I edged all the papers with my distress ink in Black Soot. The ribbon is one I recently purchased from Michaels and I added a small chinese coin charm which I had in my stash held together by a garment pin.  I have a black doily peeking out behind.  This week I am obsessed with doilies! LOL  Love this black one and need to remember where I purchased them so I can purchase more before I run out!  The flowers are from I am Roses.  I love the red Cherry blossoms for Japanese themed projects and the cute teal rose brought in extra color.  I also added some butterflies which were from a Martha Stewart punch.  I glued my flowers and butterflies down using Best Glue Ever by ScraPerfect.   The sentiment "Konnichiwa!" is actually from another pretty Japanese set called Kimono Marci from La La Land Crafts.  I can't wait to use her soon as well! :)  I stamped this sentiment using my memento ink in Black Tuxedo
