Sha-Shamrocks!

Or is that Sha-zam, lol. Oh well, either way! Here is the card I was going to put on TH Tag of March but it's nothing like what he made, at all, so I decided to find a couple of different challenges that I could link up with. I was disappointed that he didn't do something for St. Patrick's day, ya know Marchy. Spring to me is more May, with April in the middle, being Easter! Anyway, I did something Marchy, for St. Patrick's Day. I was able to go over and see my daughter on Sunday so I made the card for her. I also took her a box of thin mints (green box-lol) and I made her a little charm pin she could wear on St. Patrick's Day at her job, but I forgot to get a photo of it, oops. I decided on a long card for this one. I seldom do long cards and I like them so, ta-da! I used an old HSPD stamp that I had and embossed it on white cardstock. Then I cut it out with Spellbinders Labels #14. The little squiggly under the sentiment is from Walsingmouse. All the shamrocks are just different stamps I had plus I used one of the new shamrock dies from Verve Stamps. They were smaller than I thought but it worked out ok. The seam binding ribbon I dyed in bundled sage and inked around the whole thing with vintage photo. Added a piece of jute as a little bow and a stick pin with some beads added. I think she really liked it. She showed it to her co-workers, they liked it to. Here's the inside. The inside sentiment is from Verve Stamps. I sprinkled some peeled paint distress stickles around too. Hope you like it too. Hugs, ~Jody
