Pile It On: St. Patrick's Day / Shades of Green

This week's theme at  Pile It On is St. Patrick's Day and/or Shades of Green, so I brought out from Shamus Shamrock by Dude Time Doodle/Bonibleaux Designs to make a petal card:

This week's Dude Time Doodles Challenge is also Shades of Green, and you have until Tuesday to play, hint hint!

I found the sentiment, an Irish saying, online somewhere; it reads, "May you live to be one hundred years...with one extra year to repent!" Shamus and his clover are fussy-cut from white cardstock and glued atop the cream piece.

A Petal Card is fairly simple to make; you just glue together 4 circles (see photo of card back, right). I cut the circles with a Spellbinders die and embossed them with a Sizzix texture folder. I used two shades of green Core'dinations paper; one for the base and one for the inside (those are actually semicircles glued onto the base). I sanded the pieces to give it little more dimension.
