Doily St. Patrick's Day

I wanted to share this card with you that I made over the weekend.


I had some shamrock doily's that I bought a couple years ago. I thought that one would make a cute background for a card. The doily is foil, and I felt a bit to shiny, so I inked it up with white and olive green ink to tone it down.


I fussy cut another doily from patterned paper and glued it to the top of my inked up doily.


Added some pretty, lacy, gold ribbon I bought at Christmas time and clustered some cute buttons and brads. Pretty easy and I think it turned out kinda cute.



Supplies used: cardstock - white, green; doily - Royal Lace; patterned paper - Sichuan in Oasis by SEI; ink - white by A La Mode and Olive Pastel by ColorBox; ribbon - Michaels; brad - K& Co.; buttons - my stash; sentiment stamp - Studio G.
