St. Patrick's Day Card for Numerous Challenges

As I was reading my blog list this morning I found a new card challenge with a sketch I wanted to try.  It is called The Challenge #2 and is on Lesley Croghan's blog "Always Playing with Paper".  She even includes cutting dimensions to help you get started.   Here is the sketch that inspired me today:


Since I needed to make some St. Patrick's Day cards, I changed the heart shape to shamrock shapes. 



The shamrocks were cut with the "Celebrate with Flourish" Cricut cartridge from Kentucky Green CS (retired Close To My Heart).  The patterned paper is also retired from CTMH.  I used  the Darice St. Pat's Day Background embossing folder and a sanding block for the bottom card layer.  The gold metallic CS is also retired CTMH.  (I really used a lot of old stash to make this card!)  The gold accents were made with a regular paper punch form the gold metallic CS.  I skipped the sentiment because I thought that it was obviously a St. Patrick's Day card!

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
    Exploring Cricut--Luck of the Irish
    Cut it Up--Green for St. Patrick's Day or Spring #40
    Pinspirational Challenges--#98 St. Patrick's Day
    Simply Create Too--#56 Shop in Your Stash
    Cuttin And Stampin Challenges--St. Patrick's Day/Lucky
    Diecuttin' Divas--#156 Luck of the Irish
    Time 4 Scrap--#35 St. Patrick's Day
    Artistic Inspirations--#82 St. Patrick's Day, Green or Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!
