I'm Lucky to Have a Friend Like You!--PPA242

March 8, 2015

It was so beautiful here today!  I went outside and read for a while and still had time to sneak back in my craft room.

I wanted to play along with the Pals Paper Arts color challenge this week!  



I know these are perfect colors for St. Patrick's Day.  I don't really have any stamps for this holiday, but I did find a friendship stamp from Lawn Fawn in my stash.  I thought I would ink it up and use it.  I created a chalkboard using white ink on black card stock.  I added a little gold glitter on the horseshoe "U" to make it pop!  




 My card base is white and I used a layer of black on top of the base.  A strip of Flower Pot Designer Series paper and a strip from the Regals Backgrounds DSP pack was used for the top layer.  A frame was created using my square dies and Garden Green for the chalkboard.  The Owl punch has a little heart, and I used three hearts to create the shamrocks.  Gold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh were used as the centers of my shamrocks and then a few more were added just for fun!

                                     

A simple sentiment inside with a decorated envelope finishes my card.  There is still enough room to write a personal note in the card.



So happy you stopped by my blog.  Please leave a comment if you have a chance.  I love to hear form you!

Happy Stampin!
