This is my sample for CC625. Barbara is our hostess and she chose emerald envy, gold and whisper white. Dessert Option this week is St Patrick's Day.
Well, I looked at the colors 2x before I started my card and somehow the emerald envy translated to cucumber crush. What is wrong with me??? As I was making my card, I was thinking that the green didn't look like an Irish green shade.
Of course it didn't, because it wasn't the color that Barbara picked. But, I didn't make my card until today and just finished it at 8:00 pm and I am too tired right now to start over. So I am asking or maybe even begging for a pass this week from my teamies (lol)!!!
Here are the details of my card. I noticed that over on the Verve site there was a free St Patrick's Day digi set - Feeling Lucky. So I downloaded it and used it for my card today. The sentiment inside the shaker is part of that set as are the shamrocks. I printed the shamrocks on the cucumber crush cardstock and fussy cut them.
The frame for my shaker elements is cut from the CottageCutz stitched rounded rectangle and square dies in whisper white cardstock. To cover the gold color I added sequins inside the shaker.
My background dsp is from the Stampin'-Up collection "Cherry On Top". The celebrate word is a die from CottageCutz.
And, that is my card for this week. I have an Irish friend that will be getting this card. I hope she is ok with the shade of green I used (lol)!!
Check out the other DT samples for more inspiration. And, since it's a new month we also have new guest designers.

Yes, it seems to be shaker week! Great minds! I love your card, Mary! And I think the Crisp Cucumber is an equally good St. Patrick's color. Your card is lovely. And thanks for sending me to the Verge site to download my freebie, too!

This is a sweet shaker shaker card, Mary! I have to say, I like the pile of gold (sequins) in the corner, too! Love the background dp and the shamrock trio.
P.S. I don't want to say how many times I have mistaken the wrong color, too. Cucumber crush certainly works well for Irish green.
