Irish Smiles!

It's Friday- Yeah!!!

This week has flown by!
I have been working on a St. Patrick's day card that I think I finally have finished. Took me longer than should have because I kept changing my mind on the paper which meant re-cutting until I was good with the look. I really wanted to use this cute shamrock paper, but it just was not working with everything else. So I finally gave up on it and ended up with this. 
 
There are a lot of " lucky" challenges out there this week so be sure to check them out and enter a project. It's super simple and really fun. 

I'll be posting this card at:

Here's how I did it...
Card base when folded is 5" x5"
Green dot paper is Bo Bunny
Shamrock paper is Karen Foster
Lattice pattern paper is Reminisce
All other papers are scraps from my stash
Cut base of card with 2 - 5" frames from Twinkles Toes cart welded together.
Cut additional frames for front at 5" and 4.25" from Twinkle Toes cart
Inside sentiment printed on my computer and then cut with frame at 4.25" from Twinkle Toes cart
Irish girl/layers cut at 3.25" from Twinkle Toes cart
Hat/layers cut at 2.47 x 1.08 tall from A Child's Year, p.31
Shamrock cut  .75" from A Child's Year, p.31
Lace from my stash
Stickles and doodles with my white and brown pens.
Shamrock stamp inside card is from Stampin Up's So Happy For You stamp set
