A little big green round the edges...

I don't normally send St. Patrick's day cards but thought I would send one to my brother this year, he'll be wondering what I after lol. I made this one using a stamp I have had for years. It came in a set with a lovely Celtic cross. Think its called Irish Blessing and its from Inkadinkado (love that name lol). The backing paper is from one of my treasured moments cds. The little box is from Daisy Company, I filled it with tissue paper and added some punched shamrocks. I might fill it with chocolates for St. Paddy's day. I am entering this into the following challenges
1. paperplay - just because
2. Cute Card Thursday - lucky green
3. Crafty Catz - shades of green
4. Stamping for the weekend - monocromatic
5. Stamping Sisters in Christ - joy
These are from my DT stuff for By The Cute and Girly which have a challenge theme of SPRING so make sure you get time to enter, as always the prizes are very good.
