Happy St Patrick's Day




Hello blogger's,

I was going to try and write something witty today....... but to tell the truth I type this up the night before I post to my blog and I think I'm running a bit of a temperature. I've had a headache all day, so it's not looking good. I did spend some time working outside.....perhaps that's the problem.

On to my card............

I made this 'very green' card for a colour challenge over on STV but not sure if I'll enter it there what do you think? It's very green isn't it.

I've used two sets from GKD, Wreath of Wishes and the sentiment is from Elegant Post.
I used Versa Mark to stamp both and embossed with American Craft gold embossing powder.

The base card and the blossom shape are cut from GKD Apple Green card which is a heavy weight. The dp is from Kaisercraft 'Devonshire Collection' and I've used some gold card for the mat and the small circle.

Embossing folders used are Cuttlebug Swiss dots and QuicKutz diamond and dots.
Spellbinders dies are Blossom and Circles.

The focal image is popped up with foam tabs and a wide satin ribbon tied in a bow completes the card.



Here's the view to show how fine the foam tape is.....it just lifts the blossom off the base card.

So there you go another green card to add to the mix........well it is St Patrick's Day today right.

Thanks for dropping by, leave me a comment......unless you're that horrid Anonymous......who wants to sell me non-stamp related products.......you shouldn't bother I just delete all yours!

This card is going into the following challenges.

Clearly Inspired Challenges - Sponsored by Clear Dollar Stamps - which is - 'Think Green.'
Sunflowers and Dragonflies - Chal.33 Luck of the Irish.


Till next time......

I hear you about the anonymous spam. As you know, I have typed print required to leave a comment on my blog, and I still get those spam sellers. Ugh! Your card is so very beautiful. It is delightful that you played along in this week's challenge. Good luck.

Gorgeous card Sue. Hope you are feeling much better. I'm having tons of anonymous posts too. Nice to have a way to reject them. You should definitely enter this card in the color challenge on STV.

Oh wow, I love this combination, looks stunning.

Anon person pops past mine too and I am over being told my cards are 'pretty, can help with college assignment, and get job!' ..... with Engrish like that they aren't going to do well in the Australian job market!
