Card Concept 50 Shamrock Blessings

Hi friends! Can you believe it's already March?  Sickness swept through my entire family the past couple of weeks, but it looks like everyone is on the mend and ready to start celebrating as the boys turn 4 next week.  And it just so happens that The Card Concept challenge this week is very fitting for March celebrations.

I started my card inspired by the pretty shamrocks and the earthy tan and green combo from the inspiration. For the layout I went with the current February Viva la Verve sketch 2. (You have until Thursday to get your entries for February Viva la Verve linked up).

To shabbify my card, I picked a doily, some lace trim and a favorite chicken wire embossing folder. These touches always bring out that country charm.  I also added some diamond stickles to give some gold flecks to the shamrocks from Lucky You and the scallops on the frame.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  For more inspiration, be sure to hop on over to The Card Concept blog to see the other designer takes on the inspiration.

    My daughters and I have started using Young Living essential oils to help keep us healthy. There are a few oils that help the immune system (which I need because I am prone to get respiratory infections). I was skeptical at first, but have seen improved health for my grandson, daughters and myself. Stay healthy :-)
