St Patrick's Day

I have such good intentions at the beginning of the week with challenges...and yet here it is Friday and I have a page full of challenge icons waiting to be used as card making inspiration.

I started with this sketch from Retro Sketches #153.  And I am adding it to the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge to add a little texture.

I need a St. Patrick's Day card for an upcoming swap.  I started with a Stampin Up Certianly Celery card base, I dry embossed 2/3's of it with Darice's St. Pats Background folder.  I added some striped paper, some glitter paper, a touch of green ribbon just off the center.  For my elements of 3 I dic cut then gold embossed shamrocks on vellum.  I added a sentiment on vellum as well.

Thanks for stopping by!
