Something Green and a New to Me "B" Pattern

I'm a little late on posting my art for last week's Diva Challenge #209: "Saint Patty's" and SuzyMosh's: That's New to Me! Challenge #11: "B". I decided to incorporate both challenges in one tile. For the Diva challenge we were to "Green Up" our tile, so I used a shamrock. In the second challenge we are to use at least one "New to Me" pattern starting with the letter "B". I chose to draw two new tangles: Birds on a Wire by Mary Kissell, CZT and Barberpole by Suzanne McNeill, CZT. I used Birds on a Wire in the border of my tile and for the stem of my shamrock, I used Barberpole.

Other tangles used in my tile: Tipple, a Zentangle®-original; Flux, a Zentangle®-original; Fasset by Lynn Mead (I used in the background) 

Pens: Grass Green (GR#) from the 5 Pen Primary Tones Set by Chameleon Color Tones, permanent alcohol ink pen system; Sakura Pigma Micron pens (.01 & .005) in purple and green; Gelly Roll pen in white and green from the Stardust pack

Paper: Strathmore, White Artist Tiles, 100lb.,  4 in. x 4 in.
