Card A Day Blog: St. Patrick's Day

Hello!  How are you all doing?  Good I hope!  Do you feel lucky?  Well I have a card to show you that will give you luck!  I'm in charge of coming up with a St. Patrick's day card for the Card A Day blog today.  I never ever make cards for this occasion.  I have a friend who loves this holiday and anything Irish so I plan on surprising her with this card! 
Papertrey Ink's anniversary contest continues so I decided to enter this card in that challenge as well.  Here is the sketch I used.

Here is the color combo:

I used all Papertrey Ink stamps.  The background was stamped with Background Basics:  Chevron Stripe.  The circle was stamped with Fancy Flourishes. The sentiment is from Paper Tray.  The shamrock sticker is from a scrapbooking kit I purchased years ago.  I had a hard time with this sketch.  I don't particularly like the string but it looked so plain without it.  A few sequins finish off the card.  A small white seed bead was attached to the center of the shamrock's sequin.

Hope it is warm in your neck of the woods!  It is cold and snowy here.  The kids have school off yet again!  Poor kids will be going to school all Summer!

Thanks for visiting!  Please come by again!
