Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Hey friends!!  Popping in with a quick post.  I'm not one to use digital "stamps" or other types of downloadable images.  I just don't have really good editing software or the time to spend trying to figure out how to enhance the images.  But I really love this little freebie that Lori Hairston gave away recently (you can find it here).  I downloaded her and then spent a little bit of time trying to change the background so that it didn't come out so yellowish.  After using up about five sheets of PTI snow white linen cardstock I finally got a print that I was happy with.   After die cutting the image I kept things simple and just added some Diamond Stickles to the shamrocks.  I die cut some green glitter paper as a mat for the main image.  Green hemp twine was wrapped around the glitter paper and then the piece was adhered at an angle to a white cardstock panel.   The image panel was adhered at an angle as well and then a simple little bow tied from the twine and a light pink paper flower were adhered.  Adding this to Lori's current challenge of  St. Patrick's Day/green (I think I have both covered, lol!), the current Card Concept challenge (I was inspired by the green and shamrocks) in the clean and layered style and the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of a bit o' green.

Thanks for stopping by today...
