Made Especially For You.... St. Patrick's Day card featuring twine

It's Monday and time for another Made Especially For You Challenge. This weeks challenge is
to make a card featuring St. Patricks Day. This was a fun one for me and I was able to use ALL scrap
papers from my stash. Didn't cut one new piece of paper at all.. I love these type of challenges. So, here is my take on this weeks challenge.
I have this great box of small pieces of papers from other projects that I have done that I keep close at hand just for projects like this. I used a light green for the upper part of my card that I ran through one of my embossing folders to add texture. Then I found this really cute St. Patricts  paper with the strip that says "Leprechauns" running acros the top of the striped bottom paper.
You can see that alittle better here. Then I found these cute Pots of Gold on  another scrap piece and fussy cut them out and put them on the striped paper. They make a nice touch.
I cut a Doily with my Sizzix cutter and make the Four Leaf Clover really pop. Along the side I place a piece of ribbon and ran three strands of Green and White twine done the edge.
I kept the inside simple by just adding a simple Green journaling paper and another fussy cut pot of gold.
Just another look at my Lucky card.

    1. Thanks Georgiana, I keep every scrap that is big enough to use on a card after I have used it for my scrapping. I had used some of this on a St.Patricks day layout last year. Yes, my doilies always cut perfect. I use my BigKicks and a Sizzix Die to make them. I have several different sizes.
