St. Patrick's Day Greetings

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone and welcome to the Waltzingmouse Stamps St. Patty's Day waltz! If you just happened by, head over to the 'mouse house to get started! I promise you many treats for the eyes!
I was very fortunate to come into a number of vintage replica postcards and found these two St. Patrick's Day cards in the stack. I used my Irish Blessings set to stamp the green backgrounds with shamrocks (first card) and the Celtic braid for the second one.

For the second card, I stamped a die cut label with shamrocks and a sentiment from the Irish Blessings set and adhered it on top of the postcard. I finished both cards with some shabby ribbon.

Thanks for joining me on the dance floor and I'm off to get some waltzing in myself! :)

Supplies: Stamps - Irish Blessings (WMS), Vintage Postcards (my stash), Card Stock - Old Olive (SU!), Vintage Cream (PTI), Ribbon (MemrieMere/Etsy), Lace (Crafta), Ink - Old Olive, Chocolate Chip (SU!), Tea Dye Duo (PTI), Cuttlebug, Lables 10 (Spellbinders), Vintage Button (my stash), Foam Squares, Distressing Tool (Making Memories)
