Friends of WMS Blog Waltz - St. Pat's Day/Irish

Happy St. Patrick's Day stamping friends! Today I'm participating in the Friends of Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz taking place in the Playroom of the WMS forum. You can check out all the details here. This month's theme is St. Patrick's Day/Irish.


Since I don't need any more St. Patrick's Day cards for this year (!) I decided to go with a Celtic Wedding card with all the appropriate green!

The lovely Celtic heart stamp and wedding day sentiment are from the Celtic Heritage set. The beautiful frame is from the new set Very Vintage Labels 18. I used an oval Nestability to cut out the center of it - and since I don't have the Labels 18 Nestabilities yet - I just cut along the outside edge with my scissors!

This month there is a contest going on in the Playroom - post what your St. Paddy's day plans or memories are in the chat thread and a random entry will win a prize! There will also be a prize for one random card posting in the Waltz thread!
I'm also entering this into the Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge - to use green!

Wishing the luck of the Irish to ye today!!
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Celtic Heritage, Very Vintage Labels 18
Paper: White, New Leaf - PTI, DP Bitty Dots Basics -PTI, October Afternoon Modern Homemaker.
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black & Bamboo Leaves
Accessories: Oval nestabilities, Rhinestones - Kaiser, foam tape.
