Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you! 
I have a fun card to share today that uses the Silhouette and SRM stickers. 
The card can be found HERE at the Silhouette store.
It is such a cute cut!
Since I don't really send many St. Patrick's day cards out, I decided to change it to a good luck card.
Perfect for graduations, promotions, etc. 
I added a bit of pink to add a pop of color. I also wanted a bit of gold mixed in there. I added gold glitter to the centers of the buttons and around the perimeter of the sentiment. Speaking of the sentiment, it is a sticker from SRM that I adhered to a pink piece of card stock. 
A few posies, a bit of string, and a few sequins finished off the card. 
My gal is excited about today and can't wait to celebrate at school.  I found this cute shirt at Target. (Couldn't beat the $5.00 price tag!) I draped  a green blanket behind her and took a few pics.  :)
She wanted to show everyone the art work she made at school so she insisted I take one with her holding it up. She is such a silly girl! She was cracking up as I took her picture!
May the road
 rise to meet you,
May the wind
always be at your back,
May the sun
shine warm upon your face,
May the rains
fall softly upon your fields.
(Irish Blessing)

Blessings to you my friends!
