Good Luck Shamrock

VLV March Week 2 photo VLVMarWk2picA.jpg


Another fun sketch to work with over at the Verve Forum on SCS.  Since I have a few more St. Patrick's Day babies to make cards for, this sketch was a perfect choice.

Found this wonderful piece of green polka dotted paper in my stash and gleefully cut into it for this card.  Oh how I love green {grin} :)   The kraft background was created by using VersaMark and the smallest shamrock from Verve's Lucky You set.  The largest shamrock die and matching stamp became the focal image with a Lucky You sentiment to go with it.   A perfect fit for this week's Timeless Tuesday Challenge   and Bellie Challenge too.

Can't believe the kids are on Spring Break at the end of this week!  Yikes!  The first quarter of the year is almost over and we have two weeks to hang out together.  Love having my kids all to myself :) and hopefully they concur about having me all to themselves LOL! 

Have a fabulous day!

What a wonderful shamrock card. It's perfect for anyone with a St.Patricks day birthday. I love all the Verve I see on this card too.
I'm back my holiday in Hawaii and can't wait to get back into my craft room. I'm also hoping to take a look at all your beautiful creations that I missed. I'll try to get some commenting done soon;)
Enjoy Spring Break.
