Shamrock

Good Morning,

I promise this is my last St. Patrick's Day card. They were a lot of fun to make though. Got to play in the glitter too!
Pattern paper printed using Floral Emporium Cricut Imagine.
Rainbow from St. Patrick's Day Digital Cricut
Sentiment - Stampin' Up and blue embossed
Spellbinders for the label. A little tip here - I find the sizing between dies on the spellbinder labels is larger than I would like. So after I cut the label I embossed it then added faux stitching to create the look of more layers. Also I cut one layer in green and one in white (both the same size). The white layer I cut in half and then have that just showing on the edges. Adds more dimension.
Isn't all that glitter wonderful!

After I made the card I see where it fits into a couple different challenges out there.

On a side note - Do any of you watch Survivor? I can't believe last nights tribal counsel! Won't give anymore away in case you have it taped to watch later.

Yvonne
