Top O' the Mornin' Darlings!

Yep, we are at it again...the Duel is on!
You guessed it, the lovely lass Michelle asked us to make a wee St. Patty's Card with the kit she sent.
In it was:
Patterned paper....Basic Grey Origins.... sugar pea, Echo Park This and That...dots and plaid, and Reminisce...ShamRock
Ribbon and cording....American Crafts
Brads...................American Crafts
Glitter Shamrock....die cut at work, glitter paper
Pebblesinc......Button candy dots
Irish Blessing is computer generated and printed on SU! Whisper White, and SU! Cream
I truly didn't use half of what she sent...must be I am hoarding the left overs. I did add two shades of green card stock, a gem and a stamped Riley.

Please stop and leave LUV at the rest of the Duelers' blogs!!

Thanks for stopping by!
