Pile It On Challenge # 11: St. Patrick's Day/Shades of Green

Happy Sunday my crafty friends! It's time for another fun challenge at Pile it On. This week we are celebrating St. Patrick's Day with green projects! Our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp. This weeks winner will get a $15 gift certificate to the shop! Now onto my project for this week:

My card was inspired by the current challenge sketch over at Mojo Mondays. When I saw what our challenge was for this week I found this cute little Shamrock stamp at Bugaboo and thought it would be perfect.
I also got a new stamp set from Pink by Design for St. Patrick's Day. It's called Luck o' the Irish. I'm still relatively new to stamping (digital and clear) and it is definitely NOT my strong suit. But I recently got one of those Fiskars stamp presses, and OMG such a difference!! It's the little things, folks! ;)
I added some bling-y brads for a little added interest. So that is my project for you this week. Please come and join us and pile on the challenges with those St. Patty's Day and green projects!!
