MCFeb/16 - Celtic - Lucky - Clover - May the Wings

 So we're getting close to St Patrick's and Suzanne Cannon from Quietfire Design came out with a couple of Celtic/StPatrick day Silhouette designs. "St Patrick's Day Card in a Box" & "Celtic Knotwork Card" I combined elements from both files...

Side folded my white card (4.25"w x 5.5"h). Sponged some Distress "Shabby Shutters" around the edges. Sponged "Lucky Clover" through a stencil (Crafters Workshop "Mini Microbial").

eCut the word "Lucky Clover" and the "Shamrock" from white cardstock, inked with the greens and clear embossed. Adhered to card front.

eCut the "Celtic Knotwork" and used it as a stencil on another card and since it had such nice green tones I decided to use it on this card... Applied a piece of Sookwang tape to the back and sprinkled with Glitter Ritz micro fine glitter "Peridot". Adhered the knotwork piece to the card front.

Added some green/silver Sari ribbon and tied a bow. Final touch added some green half pearls

On the inside: stamped the quote (Quietfire Design "Butterfly Circle - May the Wings..." 5pce set) using "Crushed Olive" all over and then here and there with "Forest Moss", huffed and stamped, then clear embossed.

Inked the butterflies ("Butterflies/Dragonflies" 7pce set) using Distress minis all over with the olive, then on the outside of the wings"Cracked Pistachio" and streaked the wings with "Lucky Clover", and the body with "Frayed Burlap".
