feeling lucky

Hi, friends!  I'm here to share my first St. Patrick's Day card of 2012!  :)  I started off by using this month's SFYTT:

The green polka dot and plaid patterned papers are both DCWV, but the orange one I hand stamped.  I used a Glitz houndstooth stamp, some orange ink, and a scrap of peach cardstock to make my own patterned paper.  I added three glittery foam shamrock stickers from Darice.  The circular element is another stamped creation.  I die-cut a circle from white cardstock, then stamped the Stampendous image on top with dark green ink.  The white was a little too stark, so I swirled on some lime green chalk ink and it went SO much better with the rest of the card.  The chipboard sentiment is from Hobby Lobby; I embellished it with a green gem.  

I know this card doesn't look that complicated, but I put a lot of work into the background pieces because I don't have a ton of SPD supplies.  I'm pleased with the result.. I really ought to stamp more!  :)  I hope you like my card, thanks for stopping by!
