Addicted To Stamps & More! Challenge #183 - Holiday


It's time for another challenge over at Addicted To Stamps and More. :)  I had much fun with this one - Holidays! I'm guilty of only making "Holiday" cards that are Christmas. But, I've been branching out a little more this year. I had fun getting out of my norm making a St. Patrick's Day card for my hubby. We got engaged on St. Patrick's Day and I decided this was a perfect occasion to make him a card. And since it would be unexpected, he might like it a little more. Hee hee. (I feel silly giving them to him sometimes when I've MADE him look at so many over the years!)

Our sponsor this time is:

Now for my card:

:D  I used a cut file I'd made for some home décor using my Silhouette to cut the plaid shamrock. Lucky is cut out of the middle leaving the panel behind it to show through. (In the photo, it looks like I have the word on top. But that's just not the case and I couldn't sleep at night, if everyone didn't realize that. :D) I cut the panel using MFT's Stitched Mini Scallop Rectangle STAX then sponged Distress Inks, Mowed Lawn and Crushed Olive, onto it.

The plaid paper is from MFT Country Fair Plaid Paper Pack. I used Blueprints 25 to die cut the curved banner and stamped "2 Have U" using CTMH's Keyboard Upper Alphabet in MFT Cactus Premium Dye Ink. I finished it off with a couple of enamel dots and jute twine. It's all layered on a card base using Desert Storm Neenah cardstock.
 I'm also playing along with Crazy 4 Challenges - Spring cards, Just Us Girls - Photo Challenge, the sketch over at CAS(E) This Sketch, and the Key Lime challenge over at Curtain Call.

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit! Please come back again soon and don't forget to check out the Holiday fun over at Addicted To Stamps and More!

God Bless,

Ephesians 1:7  NKJV  (New King James Version)
   "In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace."
