Happy St Patrick's Day-Digitally Done!

   Happy St Patrick's Day to all!!!  I often threaten my husband that I will change my last name to McSchmidt so people will not assume I am German (not that there is anything wrong with being German)..... My Father is 100% Irish and Mom is ~ 75% Irish ...................
   I used some new St Patty's Day Digital Images from Firecracker Designs by Pamela- Here is the link-I combined two of the images and used a technique called Mono Dies from the Technique Junkies.  The CS is SU- Glorious Green and Metallic Gold.  I colored the image in Copics and a Sakura gel pen- Ohhhhh- love the sparkle.  I outlined the edges of the shamrocks with the Sakura Gel pen. I added a row of Gold metallic stitching around the outside of the card- love sewing on cards. I love the sentiment on this card- I made it for my husband-he will enjoy it even if he is not Irish!
Challenges this card qualifies for:
All That Scraps-Irish
Cute card Thursday-Celebrations (St Patricks Day)
Pixie Cottage-Green
Clear Dollar Stamps-Think Green
Dare U to Digi-no patterned paper
Incy Wincy-Green
Pollycraft-Sparkley things- Oh yes- this is sparkley!!!
Ohh la la-Anything goes
Daisy Doodles-Artist's choice + Digital Image
Digital Tuesday-Saint Patrick/lots of green- Oh Ya!!!
Sunflowers and Dragonflies-Luck of the Irish

  My ancestors are from Gorey, Co Wexford, Co Mayo, and Tipperary.

 A huge thanks to my Blogging friend Loretta who sent me this awesome post it note holder.  Thanks Loretta!!!  I love it and really appreciate your time and trouble!
Thanks for stopping by!
