Kiss Me, I'm Irish

Cheryl,a sister of SBS29, challenged our group to make a green card for March. Fitting, as she has Irish ancestors like so many of us do. I wanted some green, naturally for the challenge and thought I'd add some  embossing to symbolize what we may find at the end of our rainbow -- GOLD. I needed to cover the birds on the stamp and used gold metallic paper to cut circles after I punched out the shamrocks in gold. I replaced the punched out gold with another green to add some more color.
The ribbon made the third green and I tied a knot and added more shamrocks to that. The sentiment, you guessed it, gold embossing, too!
I tied this card into the Pixie Cottage Challenge that required green!!
