Now on to what I created...

I don't have any special traditions and don't really do anything other than wear green on St. Patty's Day, so I thought it would be fun to create a card and spice it up a bit this year!  Hehe :)  

I didn't use a sketch for this card.  I just created on the fly, but I ♥ the way it turned out.  The card measures 5.5" x 5.5".  I used some old DP that I had in my stash (Green - Check!).  I sprayed the paper doilie with LSG "Edelweiss Moss Green" (Gold - Check!).  I then cut out a circle of some plaid DP and layered the sentiment inside.  I put a layer of Glossy Accents on the outside of the circle and sprinkled it with green German Glitter Glass (Glitter - Check!).

 I used some of my all-time favorite IAR flowers and leaves on this card:
White Rose Leaves (sprayed with LSG Gator Gumbo Olive)
