Happy St Patricks Day !! :-)


The best day of the year to go to a pub all day and drink Guinness ;-)

I made this card for Papertake Weekly Challenge starting later today but had a senior moment and got the theme all wrong :-/  So I will be back later with a different card for that :-)

I recently bought these fab Spring Wise Dies, love this Shamrock, it comes in a set of 3 with an egg shape and a jelly bean, I am sure I will be using those a lot too. 

I smooched some watercolour onto some paper and die cut a tag and used that for the inside of the tag, love the soft watercolour effect.
 I added gold accents, thinking Leprechauns, Rainbows and Pots of Gold. As you can see I went completely off on a tangent :-)

Thank you everyone for my Birthday wishes yesterday. I had a lovely day, a little bit of shopping, bought a lovely top in NEXT, and then a lunch with me BFF's :-)

I love the idea of the shaker tag! I have wanted to add a shaker to many cards, but didn't want the extra thickness. This idea is so great. Thanks for joining us for the Classy Cards n' Such "Going Green" challenge.
