Die Cut Diva's March Challenge

Ooops - it's been a while since my last post.  Oh well, I've been busy acclimating back to winter - we just got a heap more snow this week!  Hope it all clears up before the big St. Patrick's Day Parade in St. Paul next weekend!!

And speaking of St Paddy's Day, I made this card for the Die Cut Diva's March Challenge to use green.  March + green = St Paddy's Day to me so I went ahead and made a card with that day in mind.

Happy St Pats Day clover
Besides the big green 4-leaf clover and green ribbon, I used green metallic accents from Hero Arts and their Neon green ink for my chevron background (a Hero Arts Cling stamp called Edgy Background).  After stamping it, I embossed it with a fun chevron folder by Hero Arts (with Sizzix).  I just love this look!  The clover was done on my Silhouette SD using a design from Sophie Gallo (available on Silhouette's online store) called Lucky Charms.  It has a pot of gold, a horseshoe, and some other fun charms too.

Be sure to check out the Die Cut Diva's challenge and, if you need something to do this weekend, please join me on Saturday on the Hero Arts Flickr group for our next Scramble - 90 minutes of crafting chaos!  Time is 1pm PST - details here.  Thanks for stopping!
