Luck of the Irish

Hi friends! Welcome to another week. The weekend flew by and this week is destined to be a whirlwind with the twins turning 6 on Friday. Not sure how they're already going to be six, but here we are!



My card for today is a shabby little thing inspired by the current Fusion challenge. The sweet photo of the leprechaun hat with flowers in it had me thinking of this sentiment and since I love the flowers in the Zella Teal collection from Prima, I just stared distressing papers and layering them together.  The sentiment is from the new Irish Coffee Digi and I printed it on vellum, then sewed it onto the patterned paper.

For embellishment, I loosely took inspiration from the cluster in the sketch, starting with a fussy cut a flower from one of the papers.  Next I layered some pieces from the Zella Teal ephemera collection under it, adding some leaves cut with the Sprightly Sprigs Die Set, and a bit of embroidery thread.  For the finishing touch, I splatttered on some burnished buckle Shimmerz and some white India ink.


Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful start to your week.
