Lucky

Happy Friday!!!  I should actually say late, late, late Thursday night, early, early, early Friday morning.  :)  It just started snowing here and I am very much hoping for a real snowstorm and not just another bit of weatherman hype.  We've barely had any snow this winter and I am hoping to get enough to build a giant snow fort!  Of course after that it can all melt and spring can come!!!
And since I've had spring on the mind this week I created this St. Patty's Day card for Unity's Friends With Flair.  The February KOM has this beautiful Celtic knot stamp that I just love and I stamped it multiple times for a border and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder onto a bright kelly green cardstock.  I wasn't sure where I was going to go from there until I pulled out my folder of St. Patty's Day papers and found this wonderful shamrock Celtic knot paper by Moxxie.  I edged around the paper with a Krylon gold leafing pen and then heat embossed the sentiment Lucky to have You in gold.  I popped the patterned paper up with adhesive foam and really love how it turned out.  Once again my photography skills don't do the card justice (I always find it harder to photograph embossed cards) and it looks much better in person.  

 I am going to enter it into the February Kit of the Month Sketch Challenge on Unity's blog. 
Wishing you all a fantastic Friday and a happy weekend!
