Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Hello my friends! I hope you are all having a wonderful week. We are just trying to keep from floating away! We got 6 inches of rain in the last 24 hours! Can you believe that?! Crazy!! I love the rain but geez...

Today I have a St. Patrick's Day card to share with y'all. I've had this design in my head for quite some time now & I'm pretty happy with how it turned out....(By the way...I'm totally addicted to challenges now! in case you couldn't tell, lol)

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

My Pink Stamper-  March Pinkalicious Blog Hop Challenge, "St. Patrick's Day! Think Green!"

Peachy Keen Stamps -  Peachy Challenge 08, "Anything Goes"

Cardz TV -  Cricut Cardz Challenge #104, "Wearing of the Green"

K Andrew Designs -  Simply Sunday Challenge, use green & white & 1 other color

Little Scrap Pieces -  "Luck of the Irish"

Creative Cutter Room -  Design Time Thursday, "St. Patrick's Day" Challenge

DL. ART -  Thankful Thursday Challenge, my chosen sentence is "Shamrock is the National Flower of Ireland"

Scrappy Moms Stamps -  Terrific Tuesday Challenge, "St. Patty's Day Challenge"

BBTB2 -  Project of the Week Challenge, use a shamrock & green

Simon Says Stamp -  "A Bit o' Green", St. Patricks Day theme

I used my Cricut Imagine for this entire card. All the colored papers are from the color pallette on the "Best Friends" Imagine cartridge, except the shamrock patterned background paper which is DCWV. I printed out a full sheet of pink paper for the card base & cut it down to make the card size 4" x 9". The shamrocks are from the "Designer's Calendar" cartridge (pg. 30, base & shadow features). The green shamrocks are cut at 2.2" & the pink shamrock at 2.5". I used 3 different Cuttlebug embossing folders:  D'Vine Swirls, Swiss Dots & the one that came with my machine which I can't find the name of. The twine is Peapod & Honeydew from The Twinery. The clear rhinestones are from my stash. The face on the pink shamrock is from the Peachy Keen Stamps Large Critter Faces set. The edge punch is from Fiskars. I used some pink chalk for the cheeks & a white Signo pen to fill in the whites of the eyes.

Thanks so much for stopping by today & I hope you have a wonderful rest of the week - and happy St. Patty's Day"!!
