Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  Green is my favorite color so I used shades of greens on this fun card.

I am playing along with Simon Says Wednesday Challenge "Whatever the Weather," Justs Add Ink  "J" Challenge, and The Card Concept inspiration challenge.

For my card, I wanted to use my Simon Says Stamp March Card Kit.  I used both of the stamp sets in this kit.  I wanted to use shades of greens.  Whatever the weather, greens just make me happy!  For the "J" challenge I used Juxtaposition which means two things being seen or placed close together with contrasting effect.  This is why I love the background.  The shades of greens complement and contrast each other.

I started with some PTI select white card stock.  I stamped several images using PTI inks in simply chartreuse, limeade ice, pinefeather, and mint julep.

I white embossed the sentiment from the smaller stamp set on a scalloped frame using Noted: Scalloped A2 Vertical die. 

 I used Altenew Fine Frames Circle dies for the gold foil detailing around the sentiment frame.  I added the stamped panel to a top folding pinefeather card stock base using foam tape.  I finished my card with a few clear sequins.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
