Erin Go Bragh

It's my Tuesday to post a card I've made for the challenge of ANYTHING GOES WITH A HANDMADE BOW over at Craft-Dee BowZ. My daughter has a small part of Irish in her heritage and looks Irish. She's got the freckles, the red hair and skin that doesn't tan. Her 3/4 Italian heritage hardly shows!  When I saw this image by Tiddly Inks named Chloe Good Luck, I knew I had to make a St. Patrick's Day for her with it. But, I couldn't post this until AFTER St. Patrick's Day so it's a little late getting posted.
I used some pretty lace that I have in my stock and threaded the same green satin ribbon through it that I made my pretty bow with. My sentiment is a rubber stamp that I curved and stamped on the image paper.
And here's that pretty green satin bow. I made a 4-looped bow with my little bow tool that made this so easy. The ribbon is 1/2" wide and tied together so perfectly with the assistance of the bow tool!
The team has made some beautiful projects to inspire you to join our challenge this month at Craft-Dee BowZ where the challenge is always ANYTHING GOES AND ADD A HAND MADE BOW. I hope you've followed us each Tuesday for inspiration and you still have a few more days to enter our challenge!
                                                                                                          
                                                                                                      Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Ye luck o' the Irish to ya, Gail, along with ye daughter -- LOL !! I'm pretty sure she was tickled with this card, especially the red hair and freckles, which you've colored beautifully. That lace is luscious and the green ribbon threaded thru is just darling, not to mention the glitz and glitter -- looks like someone spotted a bit of gold in the pot! Absolutely darling.

  28. This is fabulous, Gail, so much fun! The image is adorable and I love the Shamrocks! My daughter now lives in Dublin with her Irish partner and my Irish grandson, who also has the clear Irish skin, but no hair yet! He has to be very careful when out in the sun and my daughter slathers strong sun cream on him, which makes him giggle! Ireland is beautiful, and the Irish are so welcoming!

    Thanks for joining in at My Time to Craft!

    love Mags B DT x
