St. Patrick's Day Cutie

Happy St. Patrick's Day!! I have my cards all ready to hand deliver. I mailed out several last week so they would get there in time. I made a pretty card using a free download from the Crafty Secrets Blog. It is a sweet image with a St Pat's Day sentiment. Using the image makes the cards go together quickly. Just add accents, some fibers, a few layers and you are done.

I punched and die cut the flowers. To make the Tulle ruffle cut a strip about 1 1/2 inches wide by about 36 inches long. Gather one long edge with running stitches. Pull the thread tight. Over lap the short ends and take a few stitches to secure. I used some Tacky glue to keep it in place. I inserted the brad all the way thru the card to hold everything in place. Hope everyone has a nice St Patrick's Day. Get the corned beef and cabbage going.
