Going Grey with ScrapCreations- Use Basic Grey Paper with St. Patrick's Theme

Thanks to everyone who made the first week of Kristen's new challenge, Going Grey with Scrap-creations so successful.  We hope more of you will join in with that Basic Grey paper you are saving for a rainy day.

This week Kristen gave us a St. Patrick's theme.  I think you will see we all had a similar idea when this theme was announced.  The more I see the Origins paper, the more I'm glad it made it into my stash while I was at CHA.  And Kristen is graciously offering up a pack of it this week since all the DT used it on their creations.

I had some birthday cards to make for my father-in-law who's birthday is St. Patrick's Day as well as my boss.  The little heart I picked is from the Sweet Hearts set from Clear & Simple Stamps and I cut them out to create the four leaf clover.   I drew the little stem with my Garden Green marker.

I chose the Flexible Friendship Wishes from Stampendous for my sentiment along the side.  I dolled this card up a little with a few primas but left my other one plain as it was more masculine.  I also used Taylor's sketch this week TESC104

Hope you will join us this week at the Going Grey with Scrap-creations challenge and use that Basic Grey with a St. Patrick's Day theme. Kristen is offering up a pack of Origins paper this week.

Loving the green Kim! Cute flowers!

Kim I absolutely love your card this week! I would never think to make my own shamrock out of hearts. You really have an eye for mixing and matching the papers, not my strong suit I have to say.
Can't wait to see what you create next week!
