I {heart} card sketches w/a tWISt #57

I'm playing along with From the Heart i {heart} card sketches w/a tWISt #57. This is a weekly challenge and I hope I can keep it up! Participants receive a $1 credit for each completed challenge! You know what that means? Freebies! lol I'm all about those! :( I'm shameless! I'm suppose to show the sketch on my post and I forgot to do so last week! My bad! This is the sketch for this week: 
This is my card:
The twist is embossing. I love embossing. I don't know why I don't do it more often. That's not true. I know exactly why I don't do it more often. I was convinced to buy the wrong die cutting machine and that's all I have to say about that. So anyway, I used a dot embossing folder and for the life of me I cannot remember who makes it. It's either a The Paper Studio from Hobby Lobby or a Darice folder I purchased at Consumer Crafts. Speaking of which, aren't they the most awful place to shop!?! They're always enticing me to come shop with free shipping! :-\ I probably should not have signed up for the emails! ;) lol I used a Fiskars border punch on the white card stock. There's a strip of printed green vellum running across the center that I'm kinda wishing I'd used a lighter green for the background so it would show up. It's really pretty, all swirly with different shades of green and shamrocks floating around. I looked high and low for a swirl I could fit into the corner but everything I had covered the image and I didn't want to do that! :-\ So I improvised and added a cluster of shamrocks I bought from the $1 bins at Joann's Crafts and Fabrics. Of course, I colored the image with Copic markers. :) I used an image from a stamp set called Spring Baskets from From the Hearts Stamps
So I think this will do me for awhile. I've been going a little crazy posting TWO posts every day for about a week. I'm still off the chemo and I continue to feel somewhat better than I did while I was taking it but I've begun to feel really tired and I'm afraid that means I have to go back on the chemo soon. :-\ So, if you think about it, whisper my name during your daily prayers, please. :)
Thanks for stopping by!
