Happy St. Patrick's Day!

What better way to celebrate than a Blog Hop with Claire Brennan...Owner of Waltzingmouse Stamps and resident of Ireland!  The challenge was to create a card using WMS that celebrated a bit o' the GREEN! 

I used Waltzingmouse's Sewing Box Hugs to make a wee shamrock (as Claire would say!), and put a border along the bottom using my FAVORITE sweater background from Faux Fun!  Sentiment from Mixed Messages, Papertrey Ink, and striped patterned paper by Cosmo Cricket.

Top O' the Morning to Ya....and have fun on the hop!

So clever! And so cool looking - I really like the subdued colors you used Kelly - not 'in your face' greens. Hoe you had a happy St. Patrick's Day with your family!
