A Wee Bit of Irish Luck

Since I'm a wee bit Irish! ;) lol This card is for Just Some Lines March Challenge - St. Patrick's Day / Good Luck. This is the freebie they offered for the challenge. Don't you just love freebies? I do! lol I'm absolutely addicted to them! :-\ I think I need an intervention. Until that shows up, here's my card:
I've colored the image with Copic markers. The gold is from a glitter gel pen. All supplies are from my long-hoarded stash. The little glittered foam piece fit perfectly over the shamrock on the hat! Can you believe that? I thought that was INCREDIBLY LUCKY for me! :) lol The sentiment is from a From the Heart Stamps set called Hamlet PigWit Think Spring
The "ribbon" I used has a funny story behind it. I purchased this about two years ago from Joann's Crafts. I was looking for shamrock ribbon and was rushing as well. Teach me to be shopping during my lunch hour! :-\ I saw this and grabbed it. When I got to the register, the clerk said something about more in the bin. I said something about just wanting that one. It was from the $1 bin so I was kinda perturbed that she was asking me to purchase more. :-\ I just couldn't understand that. I was rushing and really to be honest did not hear exactly what she said and I wasn't looking to chit chat! lol Teach me to be rude too! So anyway... I get home... and I discovered it was ONE shoelace. lol Well, what am I gonna do with ONE shoelace. I'm gonna use it as a ribbon on a St. Patty's card that's what I'm gonna do! lol So there you have it... enough of my long-winded stories.
