Get Your Irish On Again!

Happy Friday!
It's getting closer to the time of  the wearin' o' the green! Not a problem for (any shade) is my fave color and my Mom's side of the family is almost totally Irish. At least I didn't inherit her red hair and freckles, lol. We traced her side of the family back to County Meath, Ireland and found they came over in the 1600's to settle in Virginia. Their grandson, my Great (x 5) Grandfather fought in the American Revolution and turns out he's buried about 15 minutes away from me. 

Anyway, for my Irish pennant card, I stamped the Everything Irish and the shamrock twice, drew a little pennant shape around them, then colored the bg w/ a black sharpie and the images w/ Copics. After doodling some little lines around them, I cut them out. The background was stamped w/ the lt green ink using the Woven Plaid and I added a few more shamrocks in the ivy ink. I added a flag shaped sentiment and some twine. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a GREEN weekend and keep an eye out for that pot o' gold
paper: white, kelly green

I thought for sure you cut and layered those black pennants - your way is much easier!! I love the contrast too!

Very cool that you've done your family tree so far back and that you live so close!
