Good Luck - Waltzingmouse Blog Party - March

Hello~

{Edit to note that this was card given the Quasar Award at Papercraft Star on 3/19/13}

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I have a quick post for the Waltzingmouse Blog party. The theme this month is LUCK!

Here is my card!

Lots of distressing and fun with Washi! :-)  I started with a Lunch Bag Kraft card base brushing some white paint along the edges. I distressed the edges of my patterned paper and added to the card base tucking a doily behind the top layer. Another doily was added to the center adhering some bookprint washi tape. From Fancy Phrases, the sentiment and frame was stamped using Olympia Green Ink. 
A Green clover was cut, embellished with a button and sugar coated with some chunky glitter for a decorative touch and placed on a scallop circle cut out from vintage book print. 
A final finishing touch was adding some Natural hemp twine to the top of the card tying in a double bow. I hope you are inspired to play along with the WMS Blog Party!

I am also joining in over at Papercraft Star - Green. Sunday {Funday} 7 - Linky Party. Little Scrap Pieces - Luck of the Irish, Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes

The Irish are known for their blessings! Here is one I love and like to share!
May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rain fall safe upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.


I will see you back later for the new Ribbon Reel Challenge.
