Are you "thinking green"?

I just had to come up with a card just for St. Patrick's Day and since I had these great Nikki Sivils products it was fast and easy.
The horseshow is cut from one of the patterned papers from the My Sweet Cherry Pie collection. The shamrock is three heart punches punched from one of my currect favorite papers, this green gingham from Nikki Sivils. And the sentiment is a stamp from the same collection by Nikki Sivils.
I wanted my card to have alot of white on it so I embossed a piece of white Core'dinations with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.
And, I just had to try my hand at the Unscripted Sketch for this week paired with my brand new paper purchase, Quite Contrary from My Mind's Eye.
Does this combination look like SPRING or what? The two prints are really both sides of one piece.
The label sticker is from the same collection, love how well it matches. The flower was white so I sprayed it with Memories Mist in yellow to make it match better.
I used my Martha Stewart punch for the little border along the bottom and that is finished off with a row of pink rhinestones.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
