St. Patricks Day Clovers, FMS176, Curtain Call and Simon Says Stamp

Hi Friends, and TGIF! I have a quick CAS card for you today. I seem to be doing a lot of that lately! Though I must admit, nothing is really all that quick for me. I must have spent 15 or 20 minutes making this card but 2 hours thinking about it. Are there any other indecisive crafters out there?

I was so thrilled when I saw the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches as a long thin card worked perfectly for what I envisioned. I'm also playing along with the "Lucky" challenge at Curtain Call, and "Just a hint of clover" at Simon Says Stamp. OK maybe mine is not just a hint, but clover overload!

Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Hats Off to You, Gnome Sweet Gnome (Lawn Fawn)
Card Stock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Certainly Celery (SU)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Markers: Blendabilities (SU) and Copics
Accessories: Black Hemp Twine (Hemptique)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Yes,i know that to well! Sometimes it takes me hours to think about a card design and the card itself only takes me a half hour or so! What i don't like,when it's the other way around! ;) Your card is so pretty!! Love the clovers border and the hat!! Great card!!
Thank you for joining us at FMS!!

I love this card! It's such a clean look, but everything St. Patrick's Day! Especially love the look of the "popped" hat for some dimension on this crisp and fresh card. Thanks for playing along with my sketch at FMS this week!

Ha, ha! I'll take this kind of "clover overload" any day! It is so wonderfully whimsical and I really like how the card shape isn't one you see everyday. I love the rectangle and how you've emphasized its length with that happy row of clovers. And a huge YES on your question of if there are any other indecisive crafters out there! Guilty here. In fact, my husband will find me sitting and staring at a button or a piece of yarn or a stack of paper for hours. He used to think I was comatose or something, but now he's used to it. :) Rest assured that all of your mental anguish was worth it because this card really is a charmer. Thanks so much for sharing your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
