Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone! 

Green is my favorite color and I couldn't let this holiday go by without creating a little something to celebrate my Irish roots.  I knew I had a few pieces of G45's Childrens' Hour collection in my stash that included March Montage.  It worked great for my St. Patrick's Day card...

The card base, tea pot and a couple of the shamrocks are ivory cardstock.  I matted the patterned paper with the green and golden yellow found in the print.  The purple and orange ribbon helped to pull out colors found in the flowers.  I stamped the sentiment and cut it out with a teapot die.  The shamrocks are cut from green and ivory cardstock.  The background foliage found on the ribbon and under the flower cluster are cut from cork.  I fussy cut flowers from a scrap piece and added dimension to them and the teapot collage using foam tape.  I love the pansies in the print and do have a pansy die cut, but alas, it's in my "other" scrap space!  So, I had to make do with the options available. 

From my stash...
Bazzill Cardstock
Flowers - Petaloo, Paper Studios, Recollections
Memory Box Die Cuts - Lucky Leaves, Ornate Tea Set, Posh Outline
Patterned Paper - Graphic 45

Thanks for stopping by blog!
