Shamrock Shake Time

Hey there. Are you one of those people that have to have at least one shamrock shake a year? Usually I am but this year I haven't had one yet. For some reason I think their shakes have gotten super sweet over the years. Maybe it is my age???
Today's card started with the HoneyBee Coffee Break set stamped in Versafine ink on 110lbs cardstock. I then masked the cup with a post-it and taped off the stripe area to blend some inks. I also stamped the straw while the cup was masked. After removing the masks I colored the shake and straw with a markers. The shamrock is a heart stamp that was stamped with Versafine ink also. Then I used a Zig journaling marker to draw the stem. Finally I coated the cup with Nuvo Crystal Glaze. Greeting is from Papertrey Ink stamped in Versafine black ink. 

Clover for a little luck!!

I used the My Favorite Things color challenge and the CAS(E) this Sketch as my inspiration. I will also add the card to the #EVErgreen challenge from Honeybee on Instagram. Thanks for stopping, Sue.
