St. Patrick's Day! House Mouse Monday Challenge #28



It's time for another HM&F Challenge, and this is #28 - "One for the men" - to create a masculine card. Well, I also wanted to incorporate a St. Patrick's Day theme into my masculine card, but I think I got side-tracked because looking back at it now, it can actually be for a male or a female. Ooops!! The sentiment says "Lucky Me, I've got You!"... Maybe I'll just have to go back and make another more masculine HM card this week. :)

The stamp used here is by Stampabilities, House Mouse Designs called: "O Lucky Day", featuring Mudpie. # HMUR1017

Thanks for looking!

Wow, what a great card. I love how you incorporated St. Patty's day with the masculine theme. That ribbon with it is great. Very eye-catching...I love it! No need to re-do, in my opinion.

Ooops, I think I commented on the wrong card on my first comment. LOL!

Okay, I'm commenting on this card now. LOL! You make fabulous masculine cards, which I'm terrible at. Lovely job coloring the HM image as always. Your card makes for a fabulous masculine and St. Patrick Day card!

Fabulous card - I just love the rich colours and that superbly coloured image.
Thanks for your bithday song and dance wishes.
I was 'gob smacked' when I saw your last weeks card - it was so very much similar to what I had planned for this week - ooops! Had to do some tweaking.

Such a pretty card! I love the layout and the greens worked well together. sometimes, it is hard to keep St. Patrick's day cards from looking to boring or monochromatic, but yours has just the right elements to make it pop! Great Job!

p.s. I love the image you choose too! I am going to have to case this one. :}

Hugs, Heidi
