Irish Claddah

>> Tuesday, January 31, 2012

Good Tuesday Morning to you!

I can hardly believe we are about to enter the second month of the year.  That's fine by me.  Each day is one day closer to spring.  Which means it's one day closer to summer!  I do like that there are holidays to look forward to; celebrations always make living fun :)

I've shown off many valentine's here on the blog, so in honor of St. Patrick's Day, I'm showing off this green and gold card I made today.  I had a piece of gold glitter paper left over from some 50th anniversary projects, and I thought it would be a good fit for this card.  I used some gold embossing powder on the beautiful Claddah stamp and the Swirly Shamrocks were used for the background.


Here is a closer look on a photo with a little less glare :)


I love how rich the gold embossing looks! I added some satin ribbon and a few metal stickers for embellishments to finish off the card. 

Thanks for dropping by and I hope your day is off to a great start!
