365 Cards Day 17 - Shamrockin' It

Green is my favourite colour. Apt for St Patrick's Day.  While the occasion is not celebrated here in Malaysia, pubs (particularly the Irish ones) do publicize it.  Symbols for the day : the Leprechaun, the 3 and 4 leaved clover (which to use depends on you), the Leprechaun's hat, a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

So for the green theme, I cut out a hat shape (hand drawn) from green shimmery foam and tied 2 green ribbons around the rim.  Used a piece of patterned paper from a Korean notebook with the word "LUCK" imprinted on a border and pasted that on a green card base.  Made the shamrock (or clover) from green heart buttons and placed a jeweled trinket in the middle.  Finally clipped the hat with a green butterfly hair clip to the card.

There are lots of space left for additional sentiments, like Happy St Patrick's Day or May you be blessed with good fortune on this special day!
