Happy St. Patrick's!

Hello my crafty friends! It is time for another
ANYTHING GOES CHALLENGE here at  7KIDS!
And since this is the month of St. Patrick's Day, we added a twist...
GREEN!



The first thing I did for this card was the embossed background that you can see in the circle window. I patted some Crush Olive Distress ink on my craft pad. then I added some transparent embossing paste to the ink and mixed it together with my spatula. I applied a very thin layer of the green embossing paste over the Bubble (Tim Holtz) stencil. After I lifted the stencil, I immediately sprinkled it with some clear glitter. I heat set this with my heat gun. The hello (Lawn Fawn) die cut was cut 4 times out of white card stock, which I sponged with Crushed Olive Distress ink. These were all glued together.




I do not have any St. Patrick's Day stamps, but I wanted to make a card about this fun holiday! I have seen in blogland, that you can make a shamrock with a heart die or stamp. So that is what I did!  I cut out 3 little hearts and then sponged then with Crushed Olive Distress Ink. The sentiment was typed on my computer and then printed on some white card stock.



Well...I hope you like my green card!
