Bitten By The Bug 2-Shamrock

This week at Bitten By The Bug 2 they want a project featuring a shamrock and the color green. I'm not the best at doing St Patty's day stuff, but I do try. This is my second attempt to get a card made for this challenge. I just didn't like the first. It wasn't right. It went into the recycle box. I was working on another card at the same time (do ya'll do that, too?), and I had picked this card base and bg papers for the other card. But decided it would work better for my shamrock card. I cut the shamrock and it's shadow from the Designer's Calendar cartridge and the rainbow was cut from the Sesame Street Seasons cartridge. The rainbow had a cloud on each end, but I cut off one of them so I could slip it under my shamrock. The sentiment is from a stamp set that Hobby Lobby put out. I've had it for several years. It has different stamps for different holidays. I did a small bit of doodling. That's it. Hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)

Sharon, I love your little card... The checkered paper is just perfect, the rainbow sets the pretty shamrock off so nice. Thanks for joining us on our BBTB2 Shamrock challenge.

I really like the rainbow tucked behind the shamrock...looks great! I always have a tough time with St. Patrick's Day cards also. Guess there is only so much my little brain can think of to do with shamrocks and the color green ;0) But, I think your card is just perfect!
