So Lucky

Woo Hoo!!  Another card for my Online Card Class -- Clean and Simple. The technique I used on this one-layer card, is masking. 

To make this card, I made my own stencil.  I die cut 3  hearts, and arranged them together to create the shamrock effect.  I traced around it -- added the stem.  After I cut this out, I put it onto a sheet of plastic, and cut it out to create the stencil. 
I die cut an oval for the sentiment placement.  I used Stampin Up ink to do a layer of sponging as a base color.  I have several of those $1 stamp sets, and used various shamrocks with various green inks to create the background.  The sentiment is also from one of these sets. 

Once the stencil was made, this card came together very quickly!! 
I am putting this into the following challenges:
1. Less is More - stencils
2. Use Your Stuff - monchromatic green
3. CAS on Sunday - One Layer
4. Come and Get It - St. Patrick's Day
5. Sweet Stamps - Lucky
6. Blue Moon Get Inky - Green or St. Patty's Day

And of course:
We celebrated St. Patrick's Day yesterday -- corned beef and cabbage, potato, carrot -- and great company!!  Hope you enjoyed your St. Patty's Day.

Thanks so much for looking, for your comments, and for following.
