Wishing You Luck!

Hi Friends!  I'm, yet again, trying to get a card finished for a challenge at the last minute, so this is going to be really short. :)
My color palette on this card comes from the ColourQ Challenge #180, and I used the Sketch Saturday #249 layout. (As a bonus, Flourishes Timeless Tuesday #211 this week is Go Green!) I added some rhinestones, twine and a couple of extra scallops, but other than that, I stuck to the sketch. Using the chalkboard technique, I heat embossed the sentiment in white (it's a combination of three different stamps from the dollar bin), stamped over that with white ink, and finally, used a white and a lime green colored pencil for accents. For the bricked embossed layer, I inked the embossing folder with white ink before embossing. 
On the inside I simply layered several die cuts, stamped the sentiment and was done. I may go back and color in the pot of gold later.

I don't send out St. Patty's Day cards, and I know this would immediately be thought of as one, but since I haven't referenced the holiday anywhere on it, I think it would work for any kind of "good luck" occasion.

Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy your weekend!

I'll be entering this card in the following challenges:
