Happily Ever Challenged #15: A Tribute to St. Patrick

Make sure to visit Ted's Blog, here to play along, too :)

A close up of the score lines I made with the Score Buddy:

Close up of the shamrock. First I punched the hearts, then put them in the Sizzix embossing folder to give the texture.

So its a couple of days late, but better than never :) I started this card over a week ago, but I just haven't been able to get it how I wanted. This morning I decided, I'm just finishing it! So I did. It is actually a St. Patty's Day thank-you note, because my parents gave me a very special St. Patty's Day surprise... $15 to Papertrey Ink!! Whoo hoo! So mom, if you're reading this, be surprised when you get the card ;)

This challenge was to use the colors of Ireland's flag and to incorporate a shamrock. I remember reading Ted's original post about how real shamrocks have a certain number of petals, but didn't re-reference the post before I made the card, and I did it wrong. They're supposed to have 3!! Sorry, Ted ;) Anyway, the big ribbon, orange punches, the eyelet border punch, the heart punch and embossing folder, the little button, and the background stamps are all SU. The banner set is from PTI. The pearls are from A Muse.


  1. This is a wonderful card and I LOVE the texture on the shamrock! :)
