It's a Holiday card for?

It's a Holiday Themed Challenge over at
and I chose a very unusual one for my card.
It's for St Patrick's Day on Saturday 17th.
Not the traditional Four Leaf Clover
or Pot of Gold card. 
I found the stamp I used among my friends stash 
had horse shoes and for me that brings Good Luck
they have to be the right way up and they were - 
can't have that luck fall out!
so my card was born. 
Now to start from the back - this was sprayed with
green magicals (sorry don't know the colour)
and framed in white.
I then smooched my background for the stamp
from the same bottle then heat embossed in black.
This was cut from a Spellbinder die and popped.
Finished with some green gemstones.
Couldn't find a place for a sentiment so
decided to add an Irish Blessing from Google on the inside.

That's my post for today but don't forget to
pop over and see what Holiday Themed cards
my Team Mates have made for your inspiration.
I am sure you will find a holiday that could
celebrate by making something for this challenge.
Hope so!
Till next time Cherrio from

Gorgeous Ina, love that you made the card base black, it really makes the beautiful greens pop!

Oh, SS, this is such a gorgeous bg. I'm in love with the shade of green you achieved here and a perfect heat embossed image to show it off. Fabulous!

Ina this is an awesome St. Patrick's Card design. I love it.

Gorgeous layers of green, and so fun that you can "shop" your friend's stash! That's a beautiful image and I love how you kept it the focus by putting your sentiment (or rather the blessing) on the inside.

Horseshoes are a great image for a good luck/St. Pat card, Ina. I love all the different shades of green.
