Happy St Pat's

This card is going to my 89 year old aunt whose name is Pat Sheehan for St. Patty's day. Now this is one very green card. It works for quite a few challenges.
Pile It On - The One You Must
Crafty Creations -Monochromatic
Stampin For The Weekend - Monochromatic
The Pink Elephant - Green
Inky Impressions - Green
Cute Card Thursday - Green
Twisted Thursday - Green
Catch The Bug - Green
Crafty Catz - Green
Prairie Fairy - Green and the sketch is Card Positioning System.
The base card is SU Gable Green and the accent is SU Glorious Green. The DP is from Best Creations Inc. The images in the circles are from the same paper on the other side. I just cut them out with a circle cutter. The hat image is cut and popped up with pop dots. the corners are by Stampendous. The outside was so fancy I wanted the inside to look great too. I used Heidi Swamp's letter stamps to stamp the inside. I went over the letters with a Spica pen to make them glitter . The shamrocks are from the same paper and I used one jem on one. This card took no time at all and I really like the way it turned out. I know Aunt Pat will like it.
I am seeing a little more green outside every day, but there is still way too much white out there for me.
Have a great week and thanks for stopping,

This is wonderful!! I love the images and this it's cool that you cut them out of DP. I am actually just about to sit down and start work on a St. Patty's day card so you have given me some inspiration!

Can you share with me where you got the metal corners if you ordered them on line? I have been hunting for metal corners and all I can find are the ones by Tim Holtz. Thanks so much!

Wonderful job on the challenge. So happy you could have some fun with us at Pile it On this week.

I think you squeezed every type of St Pat's image and color on your one card. Fab!

CASE is an acronym for copy and share everything. It means that you are taking ideas from someone else's work and making your own creation from it.
