Creative Cutting Challenge: St. Patrick's Day

Hi you all and welcome to my blog,  I'm one of the designers over at Creative Cutting Challenge and it's all about St Patrick's Day this challenge. My card:
Now I tried something new and used Creative Pointe’s Lucky Girl printable,
 Lucky Girl - Click Image to Close
I think this is the first time I used a printable on a card and it was fun to use too. I also used Creative Pointe’s Flower Set 1 
 Flower Set One - Click Image to Close
With cutting the spiral flower down really really small I found that even the cameo has limitations on what it can cut too, but it worked out in the end, I used some silver stickles and some brads & rhinestones for the center of the flowers on the bottom corner of the art print.
My card consist of a green cardbase from my stash and on that I added the darker green background that was in my stash of green paper, but wasn't a full 12 X 12 sheet. I added the ribbon that I received from a swap a few years ago. Place the lucky girl art work on the lime-leaf background that was punched with a SU edge punch and place 4 of the flowers in 2 different sizes in the bottom corner. I also added 3-d shamrock stickers/ enamel dots that were in my stash.
The inside of the card:
Was another piece of that background paper strategically cut so I would have that doily and postmark to bring something extra to the inside, I also included the Irish Blessing (seemed fitting for this card) from last month's counterfeit kit for the inside sentiment edges inked with CTMH Juniper ink. Added a flag pennant from Elle's Studio from this month's kit stamped with SU Teeny Tiny Wishes set wishing a happy st patrick's day stamped in black ink and a flower cut from the flower set with the silver stickles center and a couple of the 3-d shamrock stickers (and that finished off that pack of stickers :) love using up my stash.
