Shamrock Card

Bitten by the Bug 2 has another challenge -Luck of the Irish Challenge so I thought I would go green. I was reading some Irish blessings this is "A Wish for a Friend" to all my friends-

Wishing you a rainbow 
For sunlight after showers— 
Miles and miles of Irish smiles 
For golden happy hours— 
Shamrocks at your doorway 
For luck and laughter too, 
And a host of friends that never ends 
Each day your whole life through!

this was what prompted me to make so many shamrocks so they can have 'Shamrocks for their doorway' I used the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge and in CCR used hide contour to separate out the shamrock. Enlarged it and added smaller ones to the inside of the leaves to cut out through the leaves. The sentiment was printed on the computer and cut out so I could have the words in white. The shamrocks are glittered with a gold and green glue glitter.
