Papertrey Peeps March Challenge & MIM#6

We have had three gorgeous days here in Lancaster County, PA. I took some time out from garden clean-up to finish  a card for our March Challenge and Make It Monday #6.

Our hostess is Kimberly. "This month we are making Good Luck cards in honor of St. Paddy's day! But you can't go out and buy St. Patricks' stamps. Instead use some other symbol of good luck" It's a good thing it wasn't for St Patrick's Day since I didn't make that deadline. I think it was Arthur Godfrey that used to say "The hurryder I go, the behinder I get". (or something like that. Heck, I was young) Well that's me! But here's my card.

I didn't use any image or sentiment stamps. The poem was computer generated. The cardstock is PTI Sweet Blush and white with lots of Vintage Touch ink. I also used the PTI Picnic Plaid Impression Plate using the technique for Make It Monday #6. I tea-dyed and wrinkled the seam binding for the bow. The frame was made by first die cutting the inner rectangle using the PTI Button Card die, then adding 1/4 inch Scor-Tape around the opening and cutting the outer edge before removing the final paper from the tape. The edges were rounded with 1/4 inch side of the Corner Chomper. The glitter is Martha Stewart coarse crystal.

Thanks Kimberly for a fun challenge that really made me think and search way back in the archives for this bit of luck. If you have some lucky wishes, come over and play with us at the Papertrey Peeps.

Thanks for stopping by.

Love this--what an original take on the challenge! The verse is wonderful. And I adore how you have combined the lace & ribbon with a sprinkling of glitter--so very, very lovely!
