Happy 4th July, to all of those celebrating today!
Linda's fun challenge for the WTUI is to use our state or country flower.
Well, inasmuch as Ireland has a national flower it's the shamrock, and I only just got this set last week - the only shamrock stamp in my collection, so that was good timing!
Not quite forty shades of green, but I used Peeled Paint, Forest Moss, Shabby Shutters and Peackock Feathers to create a wrinkle-free distress background. Then I stamped the verse in black, and the shamrocks in Smokey Grey. They're coloured with Polychromos pencils and touched up with a white gel pen. I pierced all round the edges, and even added some old-time dry embossing with a Fiskars template and stylus. Base card was sponged with Peeled Paint distress stain.

How serendipitous is this......you just got that stamp and now you get to show it off! I love the way you designed this card Sabrina. Love the shamrock stamping and the little embossed designs as well as the great bg and the piercing.

Sabrina, your card enhances the gallery today with those shamrocks. Glad you finally acquired the stamp. Love the bg you created. I'm liking the Irish flair you added to the gallery today. Thanks for making a card.
