Happy St. Patrick's Day!

It is time for another Hot Mess card and this is card number 8.   The idea of Hot Mess ~ Success started with Kelly and the general theme is to Get Messy and you will have Success!  Messiness can be almost anything that we come up with--glitter, alcohol inks, glimmer glitz, sponged backgrounds, etc., anything that is a bit messy.  We are a group of 4--Terry, Jeanette, Kelly and me. We will post a card each month on the 12th. Some times there is a theme-like this month.  And, other times we just get creative and messy! 

For this month's messiness, Terry issued a challenge to use a shamrock on the card.  I am glad I added the shamrock brad and ribbon to my card as I thought the theme was to use green and only re-read the challenge when I went to post this!

I used Gina K Designs Grass Green Glitter Glitz Gel and a great stencil from Hero Arts called Deco Pattern for the background. I love the sparkle that the Glitz Gel has for the background.  I then used one of the Melonheadz Lucy Doris images from the St. Patrick's Day set.  The sentiment is from the Essential Sentiments from A*Muse.  The border is a shamrock ribbon.

Here is the inside of my card, with some Irish Brads.  The top sign says Leprechaun Crossing and the bottom are the lost boots!

Here are the links to the other members of Hot Mess ~ Success.  Please be sure to check out Jeanette's, Terry's and Kelly's blogs. I am sure you will enjoy seeing how everyone got messy and was successful in making some great cards!   We will all be back each month this year, so be sure to check back to see what we are up to on April 12th.

Great card Barb! You didn't even need to add the shamrock brad....shamrocks were already represented in the image and the ribbon! Great job, and thank you for playing!!
