Luck of the Irish


 
Here's a quick card using Papertrey's new Luck of the Irish stamp set and this week's Fall-to Layout from the clean&simple blog.  I chose to use various shades of green from PTI.  The shamrocks were punched out with my 1 1/4" circle punch.  I added a little detail to the card base by scoring a few lines with my Scor-Pal.  The sentiment is embossed in white.

Wow, very striking. Isn't it amazing how colors really pop against a black background. Love the added detail of the score lines as well. Very nice CAS card!

Love this! I love the look of the score lines, gives so much detail! Also loved how you used black for St Pattys day, wouldnt have thought of that.
