All the Desires of Your Heart

St. Pat’s Fact:  St. Patrick explained that the shamrock had three leaves just like God had three personas - The Father, The Son and the Holy Ghost. This was called the Trinity. Before the Christian era it was a sacred plant of the Druids of Ireland because its leaves formed a triad.

Good morning!!  This card uses some of my fun new paper from Graphic 45.  I love the Card Positioning Sketch this week and wanted to make a huge tag out of the front panel.  It was so fun to make another little ticket to staple onto the card (sorry Marisa! I know you said you didn’t want to see another staple!).  I also tried to be a little adventurous and use 2 different kinds of stitching to frame the card…I love that look :)  Thanks for visiting!! Have a fabulous day :)

Edited to add: this card has distressed sides along the kraft panel so I’m entering it into the PTI Make It Monday challenge :)

Aaaaack, they are following me everywhere, even into blog land LOL! Thanks for my morning smile :)

Great take on the sketch. Love the sentiment die and pop of rusty /orange seam binding. Speaking of which, where do you get yours? Great card as always :)

Oooh so much going off on this card, Diva! I can't stop looking at it as I see something new and fabulous everywhere I look on it! Great use of that new DP too - keep on using it because I need inspiration to use up my huge stash of it before we move next week LOL!

Holy moly! What a fabulous bunch of layers. You really must teach me your amazing seam binding beautification. =)

I'm sure Marisa didn't mind - this card's a beauty!

Oh now I really do love this one. I realized this weekend that I do not have 1, nope not a single one- St Pat's stamp. That is a shame isn't it? LOL- well you definately make up for me. :)
