Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Today I am sharing a St. Patrick’s Day card, featuring a lovely bunch of shamrocks. This is a FREE digital image from Waltzingmouse Stamps.

Click to enlarge.
 I printed the image on to White Daisy card stock, lightly sponged with Memento Desert Sand ink and  then colored the image with Copic markers. Each shamrock was also treated to a quick scribble with a green Spica glitter pen. AND…I sewed on my card!! This was the very first time for me. I’ve seen this done often and I’ve always admired it, but I felt a bit intimidated by the whole process. I finally decided to give it a go and I am so glad I did, because I love the final result. The patterned papers are from the Minuet collection by Memory Box...these are such gorgeous papers! I created the sentiment on my computer, since I do not have a 'Happy St. Patrick's Day' stamp. I printed it on to White Daisy card stock and die cut it with a Nestabilities Fancy Tag die. I used two green gems from Kaisercraft to add a bit of bling.

Sooo…does anyone have any special plans for today? We are doing our usual. To take a little peek at what we do, click HERE and HERE.

May your blessings outnumber
The shamrocks that grow,
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go.
~An Irish Blessing~

Thanks for the visit! Have a wonderful day!
