Papercraft Star Challenge #37

     Our Papercraft Star challenge this week is a photo inspiration and the theme of St. Patrick's Day.
     For my card I've used some Kraft cardstock as the base of my card and as the base of the front panel.  A 5" square of Bazzill was punched with a Martha Stewart set for the decorative edge to mimic the icing on the cake.  I've added square of the same green Bazzill and stitched around them for accent.  A layered Nestabilities label peeks out from underneath the vintage image and I used some punched flowers and flourishes to add some interest.
     Our March Grand Prize Sponsor is Michelle's Scrapbooking & More.


     Get your St. Patty's/green projects linked up by Sunday at 9:00 pm EST.
     Blessings!
