Happy St. Patrick's Day

I made this for a friend who has a birthday today.

Isn't it cool to have a birthday on a holiday?

I'm not Irish, but I do love those Irish blessings.

I did the blessing on the computer and stamped on it after stamping off on scrap paper.

The clover was cut from Wild Wasabi and 
the flowers were sponged with the same color ink.

I embossed a frame that was in my embossing box.

Hope you have a festive St. Patrick's Day!

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you too, Bonnie.
What a beautiful sentiment and I love how you framed it.
I'm not Irish either but like you, love the sentiments, all of them talk about good things, fun things and great wishes.
Thank you for sharing.

Love the font on that sentiment! It looks great against the pale green stamp - wonderful contrast to the darker green die cut.

Great card for St. Patrick's day. Jim's grandmother was born on St Patrick's day. I'm not Irish, but I'm married to someone who is part Irish. Does that count? smile.
