Sugar Creek Hollow - for St. Patrick evermore

This week at Sugar Creek Hollow, our theme is "Green... green and more green!". Yes, we're thinking monochromatic... and it's perfect timing with St. Patrick's Day just a few days away. That's one of my favorite holidays... and since I'm such a foodie, it's a great day for cooking up all kinds of things.. Irish soda bread, corned beef and cabbage and perhaps after all that time in the kitchen I'll treat myself to a nip of Baileys to end a perfect day.

St. Patrick's Day is a big deal here at our house and cards for family and friends are very much in order. This is one that is going to be sent to one of my dear Irish friends.

This was pretty easy to pull together. My image is a download from Cora's Clearly Vintage blog where there's lots of great (free!) vintage pics. Using kraft paper as my base, I used an embossing folder and then stamped the four leaf clovers using SU ink.  The ribbon and twine are part of the February Ribbon Club Kit from the Ribbon Carousel, and the metal tag is from my stash.. origin unknown.

I'm also entering this in these challenges today...

Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out the challenge for Sugar Creek Hollow today. If you get a chance, create something vintage, primitive or shabby chic, keep it monochromatic green, and then link it up to join us in the challenge. One very lucky random winner will receive a digi of our choice and a winner's badge to display. The Design Team will choose one project as Card of the Week and the creator will receive a badge and will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot. It's a fun challenge and I hope that you will join us this week and show us your inspiration.

I hope to see you there! Have a fantastic day and weekend, friends.
