St. Patrick's Day with O' (Add Last Name)

Hello, Friends and New Followers!  Today I have a card to share with you with an image from Diane's Daydream Designs.  The image is from a set called Irish Blessings.  I started with an oil pastel/baby oil technique base, then dry embossing, 3 dies from Spellbinders and Quickutz, Distress Inks, and a heart punch to make the shamrock.  I enjoyed making this card, and I think the pot of shamrocks image with the florist pick was just perfect for what I had in mind. 





You can find Irish-related sets--sentiments, outline sets, digital paper sets, a cute girl doing the Irish jib or "Riverdancing"--at Diane's Daydream Designs store by clicking here

  

Perfect images and sentiments for this mini-holiday when we're ALL Irish.  So add an 0'  to your last name and be Irish for a day!
