Rainbow Lady's Challenge - St Patrick's Day

Good morning to you all
Today we are celebrating not only St Patrick's Day but your host - Cynthia's Birthday.
Happy Birthday Cynthia, I hope you are having a special day
Of course the chosen theme over at Rainbow Lady this week is
Here is my DT Card
I must confess that St Patrick's Day is not something I usually take part in, however as a DT I turned to Vintage Holiday Crafts for inspiration.
This is a fab site with lots of Free Downloads, you will find something to suit every occasion.
This lovely Irish Lady with a basket full of Shamrocks is just one of the many images available.
My card base is 5 x 5 Square to which I added a lovely backing paper of shamrocks, again Free from the above link.
I had a small piece of embossed photo card already inked with Meadow & Hazelnut Alcohol Inks which I thought would complement the image.
I used my Nestability Labels 1 to cut out the sentiment and carefully cut out a Shamrock for the top of my card.
I am not normally a 'Green' person but I am quite pleased with how it all came together.
We hope you will celebrate with us again this week and look forward to visiting your blogs and leaving comments.
As usual there will be a prize for one lucky participant, so pop over to see what you could win this week. It is a fabulous prize, I just wish I could enter.
