Happy St. Patty's Day!

I made this St Patty's Day card for my husband. He is VERY Irish, complete with red hair and green eyes (plus, our last name is Mullarkey!).

Patterned Paper: DCWV Summer Stack, Unknown St Patty's paper (I got in the VERY first pack of scrapbook paper I ever bought!!!)
Stamps: Magnolia St Patty's Tilda & Edwin, Studio G sentiment and shamrock stamps
Misc: Shamrock shaped rhinestone, Nestabilities, Bic Mark it Markers

1. Just Magnolia - sketch
2. Magnolia Stamp Lovers - die cut
3. Digital Tuesday - green
4. Cupcake Craft - green
5. Pollycraft - green
6. HFOS - Lucky 4
7. Fussy & Fancy - green

Adorable and oh so true! I may look Italian (and I am half) but the other half is first generation Irish (my mother came from County Clare). With a name like Eileen Mae Bridget what else would I be?
hugs and a Happy St. Pats' Day! eileen
