Happy St. Patty's Day!

I wanted to create a special card to celebrate St. Patty's Day.  This card is also posted on the Outside the Box blog today and is for the Wee Memories - Challenge #47 Green is Here!


This will go in the cards box  for next years St. Patty's Days birthdays.

I started with stamping the lovely Memory Box Shamrock stamp using Memento Bamboo leaves onto music paper from a learning how to play the piano book. Hand cut and sponge the edges with brown dye ink.

Stamp background using Renaissance Tile (Memory Box) repeatedly using same green dye ink over white cardstock.

Stamp sentiment (Memory Box Happy Birthday Candle) using brown pigment ink.


Have a blessed day!
