Shamrocks Are Multiplying


 
One more St. Patrick's Day card for you using this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch.  I changed the squares to circles because IMHO shamrocks look better on circles and I kept things rather simple as it is going to a male.  Know there is a bow on there, but he can handle it LOL!

I've had so much fun working with all the greens on these St. Patrick day cards (for those that don't know, it is my favorite colour and pairing it with kraft makes it even more fun).  Makes my heart sing -- and be glad it is just my heart that's singing, otherwise it would be a sad, sad, situation LOL!   Yes, tin buckets and I get along very well thank you ;)

Love the fact there are various shamrock sizes and matching dies to this Verve set!  Julee is the bestest :)    

Have a glorious day and a great weekend!

Fun card, Marisa! I don't usually make St Pat's cards, although I do have a friend whose birthday is that day.....but I am sure she's probably had enough green for a lifetime. I don't usually pair green with kraft, but it looks great here!!!
Have a great weekend!

Very cool Irish card, Marisa. I didn't know green was your favorite color...learned a new tidbit today.
So, you're a tin bucket type gal, huh? I kind of doubt that. :-)

Have a great weekend!
