Go Green Take Two!

Good Monday Morning To you!

**This Card was featured on the CARDS/Create blog 3/15/12**

Since my last Go Green post, I decided to make another St. Patrick's Card. I always send St. Patty's cards out to friends and relatives, so I realized as I was preparing my cards for mailing this week I needed one more anyway.

So here goes.

I started with a White card base and layered another piece of trimmed card stock and rounded the corners. I diecut a shamrock in the center and used the negative and diagonally layered some saddle stitched shamrock grosgrain ribbon underneath. Stamped my sentiment below and finished off by embellishing with some buttons by DeNami Designs.

Thank you to all who left sweet comments on my last go green post! You do make a girl feel good when she isn't feeling good. Sometimes those sketches and visions just don't come out like we thought. I will say it did look a little better in person than in pics. 

I hope you have a great week!
~Tammy~
