Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Well, to my own amusement I was browsing pictures in my computer tonight and realized I had taken a picture of a card I had planned for our February Stamp Club. Unbeknown to me, there wasn't going to be a meeting, and God knew that but I did not!!!! Any whooooooo, I had worked steady at this card for about two days, then was not so satisfied....but here it is anyway!You will have to forgive me, as I do not remember all that I used, but I can give you the basic idea :0)

On a round metal edge tag, I glued four of the little hearts punched in glorious green card stock from the 3 hearts punch, and a scrap for the stem. I then used two-way glue and covered in the green glitter, then covered the tag with crystal effects (this took 2 full days to dry), punched a circle out of a scrap of gold card stock and popped the circle scallop. Stamped the clovers in glorious green on glorious green, paper pierced the edge, ran a scrap of whisper white card stock across the bone folder to break the particles some (make it more pliable) stamped celebrate in glorious green, snipped the corners to give it a banner look and attached it with dimensionals. I sponged the banner some with gable green and glorious green on the edges to give it some dimension.

Sorry that's not the best recipe in the world, and I wasn't gonna even post this card, but St. Patty's Day is coming, I did make it, just not thrilled with it. The idea came together better in my head. Enjoy! I am off to bed to start another day tomorrow!
