Shamrock Bouquet

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well and you've managed to stay warm if you're in the east half of the US. Here in the deep south, it's been mighty chilly! The trees here have been encased in ice since Sunday afternoon. We lost power on Sunday until about 4 am Mon. so that was fun. NOT! The ice still hasn't melted. On Wed. we had snow flurries and the wind picked up and it started raining 4" icicles & tree branches. I was trying to take a few pics. but had to run for cover! It was in the low teens here last night and more of the same (or worse) tonight. Sigh...So my card today is hopeful of spring to come with sunny yellow & fresh greens.

I started by stamping the Infinity Shamrock, masking it, then stamping the shamrock top from the Hatfull of Shamrocks then coloring them in. I die cut a white & a gold panel w/ circles cut out toward the top to frame my bouquet. the greeting was stamped underneath. I stamped, colored and fussy cut a few shamrocks to add on either side of the greeting. These weren't originally in the plan, but became necessary when a couple of mysterious spots appeared. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
