Sharing a little Stamp Simply luck!

Hi all and TGIF! It's time for another Stamp Simply challenge and this one will have you seeing green.... and purple! It's a color challenge. Any shades go, so grab your stamp, some lucious papers, and embellishments and let's Stamp Simply!

For my creation, I picked up the brand new stamp set from Flourishes (being released tonight) called Irish Blessings.

I stamped my main image using Memento ink a couple times onto Flourishes Classic White Card Stock and then colored the clover up with Copics in the Spring Greens collection grouped by Flourishes. I also added B10 to part of the wrap to give it some depth as well as the centers of the flower. Cut out your clover and cut out some extra four leaf petals and pop them up on your main image and bam... almost done! I did add some pearls to the wrap and Stickles to parts of the clover to give it some razzle dazzle!

For the card, I matted my main image onto a Labels 8 Nestabilities die that I had sponged with Antique Linen Distress ink. Add some beautiful satin ribbon to mimic the wrap on the clover bunch along with some more pearls and finish it off with a stitched border and a small sentiment.

Here's a close up to show the popped up parts...

I will say I added sparkles because of this GORGEOUS decorative paper that Miss Sharon sells in her store. Oh my, this is beautiful stuff and it's actually a part of a kit that you can see HERE.
Not to enable, but in the kit you get beautiful ribbon and bling in addition to the paper. I decided I would try to challenge myself to create at least a half dozen cards with this kit so look for that next week!

Want to see what the other gals whipped up this week? Head on over and see....
