It's All About The GREEN at Midnight Madness

Welcome back Paper Crafters!
If you are looking for the current *Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice* House-Mouse and Friends challenge, please click on the Mousey picture below to go directly to that post.

Now it's time for the MARCH sketch over at Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge Blog
Enter one style or both up to 4 cards during the month of MARCH.  As an added twist, we would like to challenge you to "Make it Green" in honor of St Patty's Day! Themes are merely for inspiration and not a requirement to play. Just have fun and come play with us :) 

Here is my take:
My Card Recipe
Paper: Green striped DP CS, Black/White CS
Ink: Printer Ink, COPICS, Liquid Metal Metallic Markers (To color my clover Charm)
Accessories: Spellbinders Dies, Nellie Snellen Dies, Cuttlebug EF, MS Punch All Over the Page Punch (for Background), multiple layered Ribbons, Ranger Stickles Green Glitter Glue, Charm, Beads, Pizzazz Aplenty Hat Pin & Adhesive Sparkly Green Rhinestones,
This Top Hat is from Priscilla's Fourth Of July Digi set. I thought it would look great in Green if I added a clover flower to the hat. The fun Hat Pin was colored in with a metallic Liquid Metal marker and some sparkly beads were added to it as the final touches.

 Stop by the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge Blog to see who the MMSC135's Gold Star Awards,  Remarkables Awards and Bonus Winners are. While you are there, you must also take a minute to view Priscilla's amazing Ice Skating Videos. WOW!!! She's quite the awesome star and terrific role model for her precious little ice-skating children! :)
Don't forget to check out the rest of the MMSC Design Team's fabulous samples HERE!
Looking forward to seeing all your beautiful entries this month.
