Seize the Sketch #15

Very quick post today...just wanted to share a card I made for Seize the Sketch #15.   I saw the sketch and had an idea I wanted to try.  Unfortunately, I started it right before I had to get ready for work and so now I am rushing to get it up and posted while the clock is ticking away.  Here's the sketch:
I thought it was a very versatile sketch...almost any stamps or dies could work with it, but I chose to go with all Lil Inker stamps and dies.  It's almost St. Patrick's Day and I had all of my green inks out on my desk, so I decided to make my own shamrock.  It shouldn't be too hard with all the Lil Inker dies I have collected.  Here's what I came up with:
I used several Lil Inker sets today.  First, that shamrock...they are hearts from Of the Heart dies.  Perfect little shamrock, don't you think?  The little stem is a piece punched out from the Fanfare Scalloped Border die.  It has just the right size and curve of a stem.  The background of my circle element is from Circles and Diamonds Stitched Pattern die and the sentiment is from the Darling Diamonds stamp set.  I added some scattered sequins and I think this is a cute card to leave out for my daughter on St. Patrick's Day.  What do you think?

Oh, I just love this card. It is so bright and cheery, and you have shown me several new and unique uses for dies I already have. Gotta love a card I can case without shopping first. Perfect for your daughter for St. Patty's day.

This is fab! Thinking outside the box again!! I love that little shamrock and the quilted background behind it... oh and all those sparkly sequins YUMMMMM!

What an awesome card this is! I love the heart shamrock and the pattern impressed in the circle! I see that you've grown even MORE talented since I took a break from crafting. I think of you every time I look at the sock monkey ornament you sent my daughter :)
