Happy St. Patrick's Day!

In honour of this special occasion, I made a card using the

And what better card to make for St. Patty's Day than one that includes some yummy mint green 
and the word "lucky'?
This gorgeous line was absolutely perfect!

 Supplies: Paper (DN140S09; DN140S02) ; Clear Stamps (DN14ST01)

I cut some strips of patterned paper (from Dance School & Together is Better)
and laid them on an angle on my card stock.
Using the leaf & one floral image, I stamped on my white card stock base in light grey ink.
I stamped these same images repeatedly on a die cut banner and then added the sentiment over top in 
a darker shade of grey.
Finally, I stamped them in Versamark on some vellum and heat embossed the images in white 
before cutting them out by hand.
For my "lucky", I used a Papertrey Ink die and die cut it three times: once in 
melon berry and twice in white. I adhered them together before adhering
it to my card.
I layered my card on a piece of the back of the Together is Better patterned paper.

Thanks for looking!
