My Sheri Crafts Challenge #80: Easel Card w/Shamrock

Using Beate's awesome tutorial here, I created my round scalloped easel card with a mixture of greens, including the required shamrock for our challenge this week @ My Sheri Crafts. If you're planning on joining us and we HOPE very much you WILL, you're asked to create an easel card and use a shamrock.
I began by cutting my two shamrocks with my Gazelle, making the 2nd one just a bit larger than the first. Lining the outside of that 2nd shamrock with liquid glue, I then added a dusting of Deep Forest ultra-fine opaque glitter from The Art Institute -- LOVE it!
Following Beate's directions, I cut my card from a combination of Bazzill and Papertrey Ink CS and choose to use my shamrock as the focal point on the front. My sentiment (Inkadinkado) is stamped (PTI's Ripe Avocado ink) onto a Spellbinders' Labels Fourteen die cut, decorated with Want2Scraps' Lime Green gemstones and mounted with foam tape, which allows my easel card to stand open -- so FUN!!! Looking forward to seeing your shamrock easel card soon!
