Happy St. Patrick's Day - Already!!! :-)

Hi!

I have been working on Valentine's Day cards, but thought I would get a small jump start on my St. Patrick's Day cards. Yes, I am one of those that send St. Patrick's cards out! :-)

Here is my card for today:
I used DeNami Designs Decorative Crest in my background by stamping it on Kraft card stock.  Next I used the Shamrock from The Saint Patrick's petit fours set to create a background in the center of my die cut doily. (Sorry, I was unable to properly link the products due to the DeNami Website being down)
I added some layers on the right side of my card using patterned paper and seam binding.  I die cut a Shamrock from the same patterned paper and added my stamped darling little Leprechaun hat to the center and applied as my focal image to the center of the doily.  A sentiment panel is added to lower left to make this greeting complete.

Below is a side view to give a better vision the distressing, dimension and the subtle background stamping. 
I am going to add this to the current DeNami Designs Theme Challenge: Anything Goes 
Thanks for visiting with me today!
