A co-worker asked me to make a card for her grandson, whose birthday is on St. Patrick's Day, and she wanted a St. Patrick's Day theme. So, I used Jen del Muro's SFYTT this week for the layout.

My base card is Whisper White with layers of Kiwi Kiss, More Mustard, and two DP from Karen Foster. The stripe is called St. Patrick's Stripes and the houndstooth is called Green Houndstooth. The focal image was stamped with a stamp from SU!'s Just Celebrate set on Gina K. Pure Luxury 80 lb. card stock with Rich Cocoa Memento ink and colored with Copic markers (see picture below for the colors I used). It was then layered on More Mustard and Kiwi Kiss. Kiwi Kiss striped ribbon, a shamrock from Michaels and a button from my stash, and Dew Drops from the Fresh Cut Grass collection finish it off.

Thanks for dropping by!
