Lucky

Good Morning Everyone




Just posting a simple little card for St Patrick's Day tomorrow, I am hoping to enter it into the
Luck of The Irish challenge at

http://scrappersdelightspapercrafts.blogspot.com/2012/03/luck-of-irish-challenge.html

They are making it more fun by giving a 2nd chance when using one or their digis so I will be  posting one with and one without.

M & M
Materials and Method

Green pearl efffect double sided card from stash
Green velvet from stash
Leaf effect backing paper I had made ages ago by stamping a fern stamp onto white card. I used first, second third generation ink to add textured effect.
Black cat stamp from a Personal Impressions set.
few pearls from Kaisercraft and small gemstone jewels from stash
Creative Expressions earth tones twine
Sentiment from Scrappers' Delights
Brilliance Graphite Black Ink
Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Bundled Sage
 Spellinders  Fleur de lis motif die

Cut a small square card from green sheet, folded back the front for interest
Stamped black cat onto velvet cut to fit front fold. added heart gem and two round gems, attached to card
Cut backing paper for layer inside card attached to card.
Braided twine for extra texture and wrapped around card

Printed out sentiment in green, cut with die and inked
attached with foam pads to stand proud from card
As I said just a simple wee card.

Affectionately
Vee xx

Mr Linky did not like my second go !!
