Luck of the Irish..............

Hi everyone! Brenda here with this week's creation. Our challenge was using more than one shade of green, gold or rainbow on our project and two colors in our ribbon.

I am very big into St. Patrick's Day, I just don't have a lot of rubber stamps and designer paper to reflect that. So, this is what I came up with.



This is your basic card size, layered with a green and white check K & Company designer paper.I rubber stamped small leaves from Magenta rubber stamps as a background in a different shade of green. My shamrock is made from a Clear Stamp heart, stamped three times in green and cut out to make the shamrock. I used pop dots to give dimension, then green bling was added. The tag was made using Spellbinder and the word lucky was stamped in gold pigment ink, the stamp is also from Clear Stamps. The bow is a double loop green and gold sheer ribbon, of course made from the Craft Dee Bows bow  maker tool.

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you enjoy this handmade card? Hugs

What a lovely job Brenda did creating a St. Patty's day card without the use of specific images! She cleverly used a shamrock-y looking stamp to create the feel. One has to think twice about the bow -- she doubled up with them creating another lovely technique using her Craft-Dee BowZ! And it's so easy to do! Great job Brenda.

Brenda, this is a lovely card, and I enjoyed reading about how you utilized supplies on hand to make a specifically themed St. Pat's card. There's not as many 'motifs' available for this holiday, and a lot of manufacturers are missing the boat on this theme. I love your card, it's very pretty. Your bow is awesome.
