Luck of the Irish!

St Patrick's Day was once the most joyous of days in our family as we celebrated my father's birthday and yes his name was Patrick! Sadly we lost him just over a decade ago to cancer and I've found every St Patrick's Day since to be a harsh reminder of his absence. Although the joy of the celebration has gone, I now use this day as a time to reflect on all the wonderful memories I have of my dad. Cheers to you Dad!

So, today I would like to share a St Patrick's Day themed card I created using varying designs of green washi tape and gold embossed balloons as the clover leaves.

DESIGNED FOR | Hampton Art
PROJECT | Lucky You Card

Stamps: Hampton Art/Jillibean Soup - Heart Healthy Red Bean Soup (JB0193)
Inks: ColorBox Classic Pigment Ink - Gold
Other: Zing Gold Embossing Powder, Doodlebug Washi Tape, Doodlebug Rub-ons, Doodlebug Epoxy Dots, Neenah Solar White Card Stock
