Spring Greens!

Today I have made an almost  monochromatic card,using Paper Smooches A Magical Spring set,which at first glance may look like just a St Patrick's Day set,but you can use it in so many ways,it can be used throughout the year. 
I have an awesome friend who is going through a tough spot at the moment,but she is not one for soppy sentiments,so this little greeny will be winging its way to her.

I used the rather handy W Plus 9 Clear Hearts Stacker to make the shamrocks,both the large and the small,inked the edges to add a little depth (and I cant seem to go past a project without inking it SOMEWHERE),coloured the leprechaun and his best mate birdie,and backed them on white so they didn't get lost,ran the main body of the card through swiss dots embossing folder-again to help differentiate the different areas of the monotone card,blinged the centers (well,you just have to don't you?!)and attached the smaller shamrock with a very fine gauge piece of wire. It sproinged around too much,so I had to anchor it down with a pop dot. 

I hope you are having an awesome start to Spring (despite the random snow!)There are lots of lovely Spring inspired sets in the shop at the moment,with more on the way,so go check them out when you have a few moments :-)
