Happy St. Patrick's Day

As far as I know I do not have any Irish blood but that doesn't stop me from exchanging cards on St. Patrick's Day with my Thursday night stamping buddies. Some years I don't manage to get any done because it's usually so close to Easter. This year this excuse didn't work, plus when I saw a recent sketch at Mojo Monday this idea popped into my head and wouldn't leave, so here it is...

Stamps:  Ivy frame (Stampin' Up), Celtic background (unmounted and unknown), sentiment (from the dollar bin at Michael's - old) 
Other: shamrock punch, sequins

The shamrocks are punched out from gold card stock.

Challenges (click on the links for more information and lots of inspiration from the DTs and the galleries):

Addicted to Stamps #233 "Holiday"

Retro Rubber Challenge #58 "Anything Goes"
The frame is way older than a year, more like 10 years... Same for the background stamp and the sentiment...

  8. A super CAS St. Pat's. Love the inchie design and the trail of ivy leaves decorating each square. Like the trio layout with the sequins in #4 spot. Clever & most effective design layout with great colors too. I think most of us may not have much (if any!) Irish ethnicity, but it's still fun to celebrate with pretty cards! TFS & Hugs
