St. Patrick's Day Card

Hello!  Today, I am sharing a card that I made for my partents and grandmother; I made two cards exactly the same.  I already have them addressed, just have to put them out in the mailbox.  I used the Muse Challenge #8  card as inspiration ( I will paste a copy of the card used for inspiration at the end of the post).  I used the center cut out and the cording as a guide for me.  My card is St. Patrick's Day themed and I love the way it turned out.
I used a Martha Stewart punch for the center white section.  I used pop dots on that section also.  I cut a clover from A Child's Year Cricut cartridge and place it in the center of the circle that I cut out with my new Die-Namic circle stax dies (I got these at Scrapbooker's Emporium and I LOVE them).  Instead of cording, I used green and white twine.  I used a Jaded Blossom stamp from the Luck of the Irish set for the sentiment.    Oh, one more thing I did that is not easily noticed; I placed some vellum beneath the circle cut out.  This muted the pattern beneath it.  Below is the card by Therese Calvird that was the inspiration for the card I created today:
I am submitting my card into the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at what I have created today.  If you are interested in other St. Patrick's Day themed items please take a look at a few of my other posts.  I have shared my Leprechaun Bait, a layout and another card in the last week or so of posts and if you like what you see, please become a follower and leave a comment.  Thanks again.

  4. It is amazing to me that even though you have used a similar layout, your card is so different from the inspiration - well done - this is a great card!

  7. Love the lacy border. I think the Irish are famous for some of their laces. I like the different colors and the little cut out. Thanks for playing along with us this week at FCCB. Kim Ogden
