St. Patrick's Day Card ~ All Dressed Up {1st Post}

If you are looking for my Flourishes Blog Parade post please go {here}

I'm off work today. It is bittersweet.
On the one hand I can craft today.
On the other it is a furlough day.
So to make use of my day off I made this little card.
I think they look like they are ready to go out on the town.

*Card base 4.25 x 5.5 in.
*A Gentle Touch digi from Crafty Sentiments.
*Sentiment from the Cardz TV "Happy Days" stamp set.
*Hat cut at 2 in. using the Cricut Create a Critter 2 cartridge.
*Clovers cut using the Cricut Create a Critter 2 cartridge.
*Scalloped circle cut using the Spellbinders Lacey Circles die set.
*Embossed using the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder.
*Copic markers E13, E33, G07 and BV00.
*Rhinestones from Darice.
*Fiskars corner punch to round corners.
*Memento Tuxedo Black stamp pad.

May your day always be filled with love.
