Irish you a lucky day!

This is another image from the "Sham-rock Set"  by Art Impressions that I used in the previous post.  The inside sentiment [Irish you a lucky day!] is also from that set.  If you are interested in the difference between a Shamrock and a Four Leaf Clover or the connection with St. Patrick - see the previous post.

The background is embossed using a folder from Darice.  I started to put the layered Stitched Circles [by Lil' Inkers' Designs] in the center, did not like it, tried to move it and tore the paper.  Heavy sigh.  So I cut out one of the four leaf clovers from leftover paper and mounted it 3D over the tear.  Thank goodness for quick fix-it experience - actually one of my most practiced skills!  

Love the look of the layered circles with the top one on foam tape - you can see that better in this 2nd angle.
Here is one more card using images from this set.
The Leprechaun is colored with Copics:

Create wildly and color with abandon!

  3. Super cute cards, Ginny! Love your quick fix on the first one (don't we all need one of those every once in a while) and the embossed paper is great, as is the coloring of your image (perfect!!!). I like the 2nd one, too, with the beer mug in the leprechaun's hand. I think you've definitely got your money's worth with this set!!!
