Lucky Me

It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge: #163 – colors.

And here is my take:

Lucky Me | by karen @ carefree creations

In the spirit of challenge, I used a St. Patrick’s Day stamp set – though my resulting card can be given any time.

I went very simple with the layout. And you may be wondering where my Mint Macaroon is…it is very subtle – just the dots between the sentiment lines. The rhinestone is also a very good match for it, but you can’t really tell (especially after putting it on the brighter green image).

I did a bit of image piecing too. The stem for the image was a word – and I didn’t like it for this card. So I inked up just the clover head, then I inked up just the stem from a different image in the same set.

I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I’m so pleased one of us went with the St Patrick’s Day theme and your card is so fab I’d be happy to receive it for any occasion.

  2. I just *adore* this! You’ve got to be brave to go so CAS and it works fabulously. The “lucky” on the clover eaves just tied it all together. I was so jealous when I saw this card as I wished I’d come up with it and never would have! Love it. Caro x
