Getting Sentimental at Ike's World Challenges

Ike's World Challenge blog has reached the midway point of their newest challenge. It's ANYTHING GOES, of course, with an optional twist to
Make a Sentiment your focal point.
Since there is quite a bit of Irish in my ancestry, I decided to make a St. Paddy's Day card. I created my project using a sentiment from Ike's Art called Shamrock Stamp. After printing it out, I popped it onto a patterned paper from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles Bokeh Paper Kit. I added "a wee bit o' Irish lace" (okay, it's actually from a paper lace die-cut, poetic license) before placing my sentiment onto some glittery paper. A bow finishes off my card.
Do you have a favorite sentiment? Create something with it and share it at Ike's World Challenge Blog for your chance to win a gift certificate to Ike's Store!

I love that you used lace on this, it's one of the things I really associate with Ireland yet is seldom seen on Irish themed cards. Lovely work, thank you for sharing at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers

Beautiful card. I like how the square piece of backing mimics the lace border, I think it pulls the card together. Just terrific. Thanks for joining us at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers for the Green with Envy challenge.
