The Wearing of the Green

St. Patrick's Day is in two days so I wanted to make a card for my mom.  I have had one made for my dad for a couple of weeks.  But I just could not decide what to do until tonight.  It came to me that her favorite color is green.

We went shopping Saturday and she bought 3 pair of sandals, red, tan, and green.  She was so excited to find green sandals.  My mom is so cute.  She is 84 years old and has the energy of a 25 year old and wears cute chic clothes.  She always looks like a million bucks!!
So here is her card.  It is just perfect for her!  The Wearing Of The Green!!!


I used the NIFTY FIFTIES cartridge to cut the dress forms and dresses.  A three dresses were embossed with the Cuttlebug. The shamrocks stickers, gold beads, and ribbon are from Michael's.  The little glittered flowers on the dresses are from Target.  The black card stock is Recollections.  The gold card stock is AC Specialty and the paper used to make the dresses is from DCWV.

And here is the inside sentiment.


HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!!!
