3 Lucky Shamrocks

This card was inspired by one of the hundreds that I have saved in my files. It was made by Julie Smith here at Paper and Such. First, I loved the colors...Secondly, the Rik Rak. This was before I had my own stash of Rik Rak and I was drooling over everyone else's.

The colors were perfect for a St Patty's Day card and the challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments. There were some elements I just couldn't make work, so I switched it up a bit. For instance, I loved her little green banner at the bottom, but I opted for just a stamped image. I think my card was already busy with ribbons and buttons, that it was just too much for me.

These shamrocks are from the Got Treats set. I was actually amazed when I looked through all my products to see so many options I could use for this holiday. Check out your stash and see what you have hiding out ;)

Stamps: Got Treats & Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Crumb Cake & Whisper White Cardstock
Ink: Pear Pizzazz & Chocolate Chip Classic Pads
Accessories: Corner Rounder, Green Rik Rak and Stitched Ribbon, Designer Buttons-Subtles and Linen Thread
