St. Patrick's Day with SS

Sweet Stamps Challenge:

St. Patrick's Day

Here's the card I created:
This is the first St. Patrick's Day card I have ever created!!  So that was pretty exciting!

Especially since I loved the inside sentiment I used that I recently found by SS! 
"Never iron a four-leaf clover, you don't want to press your luck." - Which is from the set Four leaf Luck Duo! Which consists of this sentiment and a 4-Leaf Clover.


I added some Creative Inspirations Resplendence Glitter in Emerald Green to the outline of the 4-Leaf Clover to add some fun sparkle using my quickie glue pen!!


I used the Queen Anne Lace die to add a frame around the St. Patrick's Day sentiment.  I added Green Olive Creative Inspirations Pain to the cut die to add shimmer to it!

After doing this I thought how fun it would be to use this die to create snowflakes for those holiday cards!!  I love this new die from Cheery Lynn!!  Cheery Lynn's Challenge this week happens to be "Lots of Layers"!

Gorgeous card. Love your design and how you used the border die around the circle. The ribbon and pearls really add a finishing touch.

I love your card- the layout is great and I love the die cut- ribbon and pearl flourishes. The glitter on the shamrock is such a fun extra...as is the sentiment on the inside!

Such a snazzy card, I hope with this being your first St Patricks Day card that it will bring you lots of luck. I really like how you used the Queen Anne Lace die, it really looks nice around the sentiment. Thanks so much for taking part in this weeks challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs.
