Lucky Me!

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone! This card is for my son. He'll be getting it later this afternoon after school - and after we make the shamrock cookies to celebrate the day. This particular card was made for the latest challenge over at Happily Ever Crafter - a St. Patrick's Day card with the colors of the Irish flag and a shamrock.

Now, I admit, I deviated slightly from the colors, but as I said yesterday, I just think St. Patrick's Day needs at least a little bit of gold. I kept the card very simple and took the Irish flag pretty literally (can you see it?) so now we can talk about Ireland and find the flag and the country on the map and what not.

I'll also be putting this up on One Stop Craft Challenge - Clean and Simple.

Thanks for looking (and maybe letting me know your thoughts).

Supplies: Stamps-PTI, STampin UP; Cardstock-Unknown from the stash; Embossing powder-Ranger; Ink-Colorbox, Tsukineko


  1. Amanda, this is wonderful and I agree... you can't have St. Paddy's day without some leprechaun gold! :) I love how you made the shamrock. It looks like you cut out three hearts? Great use of the colors as an educational lesson for your son. ;) Thanks for playing along this month!

  2. Too cute, yet again! You really do know how to craft great cards and I love how you incorporate your knowledge, ideas, and tools to bring out the best for a challenge.

    Hope all of you had a terrific St. Paddy's Day and that the cookies were tasty!
