H{Ippity} Hopping towards St. Paddy's Day!

Well, it's Monday, we've lost an hour once again for daylight savings time... but it's time for another Ippity Blog Hop!  Totally makes it worthwhile if you ask me!  Don't forget to check out all the other blogs - you can find the list Here

The card I am sharing today is in celebration of St Patrick's day and that little bit of Irish that I think is in all of us this time of the year:) 

This card features my favorite butterfly from the Ippity set Devoted.  You can't really tell in this picture, but I embossed the butterfly in gold on green paper, then cut out the wings.  The wings are attached over a second embossed image on the white cardstock using a glue dot in the center.  I stamped the background using the Shamrock Background from Peddler's pack with Artichoke ink over Celery cardstock.  The blessing sentiment stamp is from Waltzing mouse - and is my toast to all of my family, friends and fellow crafters this year!  May the Luck O' the Irish be with you all!

Happy Stamping!
