My friend received some great news yesterday; she was offered a job that she had recently applied for, and will be starting next Monday. Like me, she left work to raise her family, a little over seven years ago! Where did that time go? Feels like we were comparing bumps just yesterday….
Anyway, I couldn’t let this milestone pass without dropping her a little card to let her know we’re all wishing her all the best! Although the computer is now sorted, I’m still on a CAS streak this week and thought I give my Pro-Markers the day off… Here’s today’s card:
The sentiment and shamrock border are both from the Silhouette store. I cut the sentiment from a good, thick cardstock so it has a bit of depth to it, while the border was cut from a thinner cardstock, and then I added a second layer of glittercard to the four-leaf clovers – after all, they’re the lucky ones, aren’t they, and I’m sure luck would sparkle, given the choice!!
The background paper was a free digital paper download from dbsdigiscraps – there are three papers in all – I’ve put the others safely by for some St Patrick’s Day cards later this year!
Finally, I added a little band of 3mm satin ribbon in the same rich dark green as the card stock and glittercard.
I based this card around the current sketch over at Mojo Monday ;it’s a very versatile layout and I think it would suit most occasions and card styles!
I’d like to enter this card into the following challenges:
