Stampin'B Challenge #50 - Monochromatic Green

NancyRuth was the hostess for the Stampin'B's challenge today. Her monochromatic green challenge came during the right week – St. Patty’s Day was yesterday. I hope the luck of the Irish was with you!

I must confess that I used Laura Fredrickson’s (scrapnextras) design for the basis of my card this week. When I saw what she had done with the new Flourishes’ set Irish Blessings, my Irish ancestors channeled me to get this set! Book lover that I am, I like the “book” look of Spellbinders Labels Seven. I cut out the shape using Mark’s Finest Papers Pensacola Sand Naturals and then sponged around the edge with Palette Landscape ink before removing the die. Then I stamped the sentiment and sprig of shamrocks, adding the ribbon and shamrock button. It's a pretty simple card, but it gets the message across.
