The Card Concept #50

Hello everybody!!!
Welcome to a NEW 
challenge here at

Guess what inspired me about this photo!!! haha!

YES!!! It was the green and the shamrocks!

This cool background was made with a technique I saw on Jennifer McGuire's blog called Watercolor Lifting+Heat Embossing. You can watch it HERE.
I think this technique is so cool!!!!

My shamrock was made with  an older MFT stamp set called Distressed HeartsI stamped 4 hearts in the same distress inks on the background, and then stitched them in the shape of a shamrock to the white embossed panel.

I hope I have inspired you to play with us
