I almost forgot today was St. Patrick's Day.  My son reminded me this morning while I was getting his clothes out for school.  His kindergarten teacher told all of the children to wear green today and then I remembered this card I made and I thought it would be perfect to share with you.

I used the shamrock stamp from the Sale-a-bration set, So Happy For You.  I stamped is using two different color green inks- certainly celery and old olive.  Then all I needed to do was to punch each shamrock image out using my 1/2" circle punch and then place them onto my old olive card stock layer.  The easiest way to make sure that the circles are equally placed is to start by placing a circle in each corner and then work your way inward, placing the center circle onto your card stock last.  This method always seems to work best for me. 

The embellishments I added on this card were a single rhinestones jewel in the center of the middle shamrock and a three knot ribbon.  This is a really easy ribbon treatment to do.  First you tie one color of ribbon along your card stock base (or where ever you wanted you ribbon) and then just take two pieces of coordinating ribbon and just tie them along the ribbon using a simple knot- this is a great way to use up some of those ribbon scraps we always seem to have lying around.

The main shamrock layer was placed onto my white card stock layer using dimensionals and then lastly, I stamped on my good luck sentiment, which is also from the same stamp set.

Well, I hope you all had a wonderful St. Patrick's Day!  I'm a bit late posting today because I've been so busy trying to train my new puppy.  She's doing well, except for the puppy biting.  I'm hoping she so learns to stop doing that because those darn puppy teeth are sharp.

Pretty card Patty. It was 59 degrees here today, so that was a good day :)
