St. Paddy's Day card - ColorQ 180; SFF031513

Sunday is St. Paddy's Day - so here's wishing the luck o' the Irish to ya'

The ColorQ 180 Challenge was to use Garden Green, Lucky Limeade, Basic Black, Basic Gray and White.

My card base is lucky limeade with Basic Gray sponged around the edges.  I used an adorable little doily behind my clover centerpiece.  The clover is made with the large heart punch and garden green card stock, as well as Printed Poetry designer paper.  I added a cute little black and white polkadot ribbon as an accent.

 This closeup shows how I put the DSP slightly in from the edge of the punched heart leaf so that it had a border of the main color behind it.  I like how that looks.

 I also used some black rhinestones in a swirl at each corner of my card, along with the garden green banner that has the sentiment "Got Green?" stamped on it with garden green ink.

I left my inside simple with a stamped clover punched out and ink sponged around the edges.

I hope you enjoyed my card today.  Also, do not forget my BIG SHOT SPECIAL that I have going on until March 22nd.  The details are below.
