Three Clovers Thursday Challenge #3

This is for Kerry D-C's challenge over at Three Clovers Designs. This week's challenge was to use mostly green and three embellishments on your card. I used Icons green rhinestones, SU ribbon and some glittery shamrocks I bought at Mike's.

I didn't have any St. Patty's stamps and couldn't find any at Mike's yesterday. I had these images of penguins sitting on my desk. I was stamping some for a friend (wink, wink, you know who you are) and some weren't the greatest. I hate to throw things away so I kept this because the flipper was not inked right. I fixed that by sticking a shamrock on top. I ended up just printing out the sentiment and adhering to cs before cutting with my Nesties. That was the cheap way! LOL After all, I'm supposed to be on a spending freeze.

I made this for my bff in Michigan. She's pretty Irish with a name like O'Betts!

So go and check out the amazing cards Kerry and "the girls" made! Also, Kerry has some yummy candy you can win by a simple guess!

p.s. Used SU cs & ribbon, Memory Box stamp, Karen Foster paper (old - from my stash!).

hate to be the one to rain on your parade but I only see 2 clovers and not 3! Unless of course in the top right one clover fell apart and the 3 dots are in homage for the fallen clover.
