Vintage St. Patrick's

     OK, I have great news which I've been sitting on for ever-so-long.  I've joined the Design Team at Aud Sentiments and this is my first post as a DT.  I've been playing in their challenges for a couple of years but now I have joined the team so I'll get to make something for each challenge they have.  They actually have one large team but only half of us post the first week of the challenge and the other half post during the second week.  That means each of you have two full weeks to get something made and submitted.  Hope you're going to come and be part of it this time.

     We have two sponsors this time; one is "Add a Little Dazzle" and the other  is "My Artistic Adventure." We have a Tic Tac Toe table for our theme.  I used the middle column; Something pink/ Flowers/ Glitter or bling.

     My images are from the St. Patrick's Postage Stamps collage sheet by My Artistic Adventures.

     Another St. Patrick's card with gingham check papers, wide ribbon, die cut and matted images, and wonderfully glittered flowers and shamrocks (on the ribbon).  The sentiment is hand cut and I added pearls to two corners.  This one is definitely NOT clean and simple!!   

   (ribbon/ die cuts/ pearls)

     OK, how's that for a fancy entrance to the new team?   Perhaps it's even 'over the top' for me, considering that my usual style is somewhat more subdued.  :-D  Come play with us.  Pick a row or column, make something delightful, and enter it at Aud Sentiments.  Don't forget, it has to have a sentiment on it!  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

What a find that ribbon was for this card Connie - makes a great element behind the prints you chose to use! I also like the half pearls you used to anchor the corners. Very Irish! And welcome again to the team!
