St Patrick’s birthday

Just popping in to quickly show you a card I made for a dear friend. His birthday is today, which is of course St Patrick's day, so I gave his birthday an Irish feel with a four leaf clover & an Irish sounding greeting – 'happy o' birthday'.
The clover is made with large hearts from my brand new heart to heart punch (popped on dimensionals) & the button is a retired SU one. The greeting is mounted on 4 punched word windows stuck together (faux chipboard I call it). The paper is all from the 'Windsor Knot' DSP pack. I snuck in some ribbon (as you do), but I think it still looks manly enough, even though Damien said the clover looked like a flower (sigh!).
Anyway, Happy St Patrick's Day everyone!
Inky wishes, Di

PS: Nicky – Hope Russ has received it today, but if not, please wish him a very happy birthday & don't spill the beans about the card... just make sure he knows it's a four leaf clover!

Stamps: On Your Birthday
Card: chocolate chip, old olive, Windsor DSP
Ink: chocolate chip
Accessories: choc chip grosgrain ribbon, button (retired)
Tools: heart to heart punch, word window punch

Hi Di,

thought this was perfect card for a bloke. Loved the use of the Windsor Knot DSP. I thought it looked like a four leaf clover - really!
