St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick's Day tends to get a little overlooked in my house, because it's also Sophie's birthday!  Still, I recently won a set of St. Patrick's Day stamps from Mary at CardzTV, and it inspired me to remember that March 17th is more than just my dog's birthday.  :)

I used a white A2 card base.  It looked so stark against the shamrock paper (from Paper Studio's All Seasons 2) that I decided to ink up the edges a little.  I just used my regular green dye ink, nothing special.  Then I put down some green Ric-rak ribbon.  I cut the shamrocks from Celebrate with Flourish, only using the shadow and the base cut.  Then I went around the shadow with Star Dust stickles.  I love how the clear-ish stickles colors can spice up anything!

I finished the card off with a stamp from my new St. Patrick's Day stamp set. 

This card is being entered into the following challenges:
