Four Leaf Clover Friends

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! My card today is showcasing a new greeting! Isn't it terrific? In case you didn't know, I love St.Paddy's day cards so much because my favorite color is GREEN. There's never a shortage of green in March, lol. There is a real shortage of green around here right's still too cold for anything except evergreens. 

So after stamping the new greeting, I stamped a silhouette clover on top. Truth be told, this frame with the circle cut out is the circle I cut out and used on yesterday's challenge card. Why waste a perfectly good piece of white card stock just because it has a big circle cut out? The greeting was die cut to fit inside w/ another leftover (the lime green circle) around it. The shamrock background was stamped across the circle cut out frame using the green rainbow pad then attached to a larger, kelly green layer. I had a strip of vellum on my desk, so I stamped the shamrock swag across it w/ black then colored them in on the back side and bordered it w/ thin green strips. Somehow I accidentally cut the bottom too short, so I used a pair of mini scallop scissors on it and attached another strip of green. See, it's all good! The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used on the back side of the vellum.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
