St. Patrick's Day at The Kraft Journal

For this week's St. Patrick's Day Challenge at The Kraft Journal, I used some vintage St. Patrick's Day images that I "googled" and found on the internet for free.  I printed the images onto Buff Ivory Cover Weight Cardstock and cut them out.  I used a Small Buff Ivory Note Card for my card base, and attached patterned paper and the images, and inked them; I then placed a green glittered Tiny Wooden Clothespin on one of the images.  Next, I added a big bow made from Vintage Winter White Hand-Stained Bias Tape and Green Baker's Twine.  I attached a vintage green button in the center of my bow.  Pretty simple!
I sure hope that you will grab some fun Kraft Outlet supplies, and come play along in this week's St. Patrick's Day Challenge with us.  It's fun to celebrate even if you're not Irish.  Someone you know is....and that "someone" would enjoy a card from you.
