Good Luck with Yoda

When I saw this inspiration picture from The Card Concept for shamrocks, patterns, and greens,

I wondered what I could make for the kids for Send A Smile 4 Kids. There is not time to get a St. Patrick's day one done. Well, Yoda is green--so what could I do with that? Using this sketch from Freshly Made Sketches

Here it is.
My card concept is clean and layered. The sparkly green is from WalMart. The pattern is a scrap from SU. I printed out the Yoda picture from an online source and cut it out. Then did the sentiment via computer. I'm not sure the hospital staff will like this one as the green sparkly paper really sheds its sparkles. I have them all over my desk, hands, clothes, and probably my face too. (Janet, I promise I will put this in a baggie before sending it to you)

 Reminds me of the story about the woman late for a gyn appt. grabbed a washcloth off her sink, washed up and went to the appt. When her daughter came home from school that afternoon she asked her mother where was the washcloth with all her sparkles that she left on the sink that morning.

The green sparkle paper is NBUS so I will also link this one to DJ Kard Kreations NBUS challenge
