My Growing In Unity Week!!! Day 2!!

Well step right up my friends to the pub and have a green beer on me!! It's St. Patty's Day!!! Woo Hoo, to all my fellow Irish friends and not Irish friends Top O' the mornin to ya!
In recognition of this glorious day I used Green, I have a card to share and a small box to fill with good 'ol lucky charms for my day 2 post!!

My card features Argyle heart from Unity stamped in garden green on kraft cs and embossed with clear embossing powder over all the hearts. The "enjoy" sentiment fit to me with the theme of St. Patty's day, Drinking! I stamped in basic black and also embossed. I layered this panel onto 7 gypsies dp and then onto whisper white cs. I added BasicGrey brads in all four corners and the middle. I love this technique, Joanne is the only person I have seen do this and I loved it right away!! Thanks Joanne again for the inspiration!

Stamps Used: "Enjoy" Feb KOTM, Argyle heart-Unity Stamp co!!
Papers Used: Kraft, whisper white SU, 7 gypsies dp
Ink Used: Garden green, basic black SU, versamark
Accessories Used: Clear embossing powder SU, heat gun, basicgrey brads

Next up is a little box, I used the Origami fold technique for making the bottom and top of this box. I used Basicgrey cupcake dp for the bottom and 7 gypsies dp for the top of the box. I stamped "happy birthday" in riding hood red ink from the awesome new set birthday chic, I love this set!! The present is also from this set and I embossed with clear embossing powder. I added a gold clip and some riding hood red ribbon. You could fill this with all sorts of goodies!
