Inspiration Station March Challenge

Hi Crafty Friends and Happy 1st Monday of March.  Today sees the start of a new challenge month at The Inspiration Station Challenge Blog.  The inspiration photograph is quite fitting for this month:

I was inspired by all the green in the photo, not to mention St. Patrick's Day is coming up so I went with an Irish theme and colored this sweet little red headed lass from Star Stampz using Prismacolor Pencils. 

The papers are snippets from a digital paper pack, from where escapes me.  The sentiment is from Cardz TV and the gold sequins are from my stash.

I was attempting a new flesh tone combination and to be honest, this poor lass looks a "little green 'round the gills" as my Daddy used to say to us kids when we had stomach viruses.  I was going for that reddish, Irish time I'll stick to what I know.

The Inspiration Station Challenge is also teaming with The Double Trouble Challenge from today through the 19th of March.  Please visit their challenge and play along in their "Pinch Proof" Challenge.  You can find their challenge HERE.

That's all for now, I'll be back in an hour to share another design team project!  Until then, Happy Crafting!
