Good Luck Gnome

Happy Wednesday, all! I made a card for a sweet sweet friend's birthday that happens to be on St. Patrick's Day.

I thought this adorable gnome is perfect for this. He/She is Good Luck Gnome from Whiff of Joy Stamps.

Gotta love this cutie! I love his/her loaded bag of shamrocks, who doesn't like loads of good luck and well wishes? =)

The patterned paper is from the Minuet collection by Memory Box. I used Martha Stewart's Doily Lace Edge punch on the upper part of the paper strip behind the ribbon and the Heart Lace Border Die on the lower part of the paper strip. The sentiment is from the Sending Smiles set by Hero Arts.

Have a most fabulous day, my friend! Sorry that this card will get to you late. Love ya, girl! =)

Also, my wonderful friend Lisa is opening her own online store -The Craft's Meow on Monday. She has been previewing the products that she will be carrying at The Craft's Meow Store Blog and she has a fabulous grand opening prize up for grabs. The prize is a set of 72 Copic Ciao Markers!!!
