Shamrocks & Cuttlebug Spots!

Top O' the Morning to you all!
I'm in a Irish mood if you couldn't tell...LOL!
Hope you're having a good Tuesday!
Here is a card I did this morning for the Cuttlebug Spot Challenge. This week Nilda asked her team to use bows. Of course all are welcome to play along.
The shamrock is cut from Paper Doll Dress Up and run through the Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder. I distressed the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink and then pop dotted it. The scallops are cut from Nesties. The one right behind the shamrock is embossed with the Floral Screen folder. The blue I pulled from the backround paper.
The three paper blocks backround paper is from My Minds Eye I found at Hobby Lobby yesterday.
The four pale green adhesive gems I found at Michaels in the dollar bin a long time ago.
The ribbon is from a four pack at Hobby Lobby.
Hope you enjoy!
Have a good one!

  10. I love this! My birthday is on St. Patty's Day, so I have a super soft spot for this holiday. In fact, when I got to your blog off the Cricut MB, I fell in love with your background so much I have been all over!! Thanks for sharing!!

  11. Oh Chrissy! I am so lovin your card! What a fun idea to add just a bit of texture with your cuttlebug! I was just thinking of ways to make shamrocks... didn't even realize PDDU had one! LOL Back to the books for me! Thanks for the inspiration. Great job.
