Kiss me! I'm Irish


Couldn't resist that title sorry lol. This card is heading to America for a lady's birthday which is on St. Patrick's day. She will be 76 years young! and loves everything Irish as well as being a chocoholic lol (who isn't?) I used digi papers and a decoupage sheet by Audrey at the lilac garden. Added some stitching for a border and faux stitching round the circle. Gave her a bit of glitter and finished with some shamrocks. I am entering this into these challenges:
1. Sweet Sketch Wednesday - followed the lovely sketch
2. Flutterby Wednesday - photo inspiration (an Irish fairy)
3. Cooking it up with Katie - a 3d image, metal (brads) and tied in with another challenge
4. Stampavie - Spring
5. Quixotic challenge - leaves (mine are shamrocks)
6. Crafty Creations - one colour with shades (greens)
