This card uses all Stampin' Up! supplies: Whisper White and Mint Macaron card stocks, Crumb Cake for the window framelit die which was then swiped with Soft Suede and Espresso to give it a wood grain look. Colored the leprechaun in markers and added textured to the "paneling" with the Wood Grain embossing folder.
I also did the inside with this set, stamping the little shamrocks in Wild Wasabi on the one side and the full leprechaun with the sentiment on the inside.

This novel has been around for a while and on my list of books to be read for a few years now.
This is the fictionalized story of Dinah, daughter of Leah and Jacob from the Book of Genesis. Anita Diamant does a beautiful job of bringing these women to life. The red tent was where the women went during their monthly cycles, as they were not to be around men when they were considered "unclean", where they delivered their babies, and lived a good part of their days with each other. An interesting and informative look into the lives and practices of the midwives who were truly gifted doctors and healers really, who were taught by the generations of women before them. If you have a hard time keeping track of the lineage, the Bible does a pretty good job of telling you who begat whom :)
Am looking forward to the film version, hope they do a good job with this one.
