Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Wow, I can't believe that St. Patrick's Day is only a few days away.  So with that in mind, I would like to share with you a card I made.

Card Recipe:

Tan cardstock - 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
White cardstock - 3 7/8 x 5 1/8
Black cardstock - 3 5/8 x 3 1/2
Green cardstock - 3 3/8 x 3 1/4

Birthday Bash Cricut Cartridge (page 64):

White circle @ 1 3/4
Black circle @ 2
Tan scalloped circle @ 2

A Child's Year Cricut Cartridge (page 31):

Shamrock @ 1 1/2

Shamrock was outlined with a black zig pen.  A green brad was punched in the center.  The shamrock was then adhered to the circles with foam tape.

Black ribbon (5/8) from Offray was tied around the white cardstock and then knotted.  I stamped "Happy St. Patrick's Day" from Hero Arts with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Peeled Paint onto the white cardstock.

As always, thanks for stopping by and leaving comments.  I truly appreciate them.
