Magical Shamrock


Well, I really did not want to do a St. Patrick's Day card....I'm not Irish, I don't have any cute stamps, I am NOT into green, not for clothing, dectorating or anything....BUT in honor of those who do celebrate St. Patrick's Day (and the fact that there are so many challenges...lol), I have made this card. I decided to have a magical shamrock that provided nectar for hummingbirds. I cut out the shamrock from PDDU and embossed with CB swiss dots and divine swirls folders. The picture does not do justice to the papers, but you get the idea. I still don't like green, but...here it is, and thanks for taking a moment to stop by.


Challenges:





Sketch - Papertake



Monochromatic - Stamping for the Weekend

spots and dots - One Stop Craft
