Colour Q and St. Pat's day

To start off my post today, I just have to share this amazing color challenge, Colour Q.
I don't even know how they come up with such amazing inspiration pieces but I just had to do this one when I saw these colors.
What is funny is this was not even where I was going to start until I saw this doiley paper on my desk sitting right on top of the red print! It was meant to be!
My flower is three different sizes of circle punches layered together. All I did was clip "into" each of the circles with my scissors and then I bent the layers forward.
St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner and this gave me the perfect reason to use these papers that I received at CHA winter from Little Yellow Bicycle.
The Lucky You part is a sticker.
The flourish is cut out of one of the prints.
I don't usually decorate the inside of a card but I just had to so I could use the Lucky Me sticker!!!
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
