st patricks day card that will be in my next class

this is a gate fold card...its made with the was hard to find anything with st patricks day theme...i like how it turned out...the out side has the swiss dots folder embossed on the front panels...i used 2 different shade of green...the one that is embossed is made by co-ordinations...the ribbon is sandwiched in between those panels (and may be just a tad too long)  the  idea was to use that to open the card...the inside was cut with the designers calender cartridge...(love it now...didnt think i was going to like it)  on the back i put a little lucky hat....this is 1 of the 4 cards that will be in the class....i just havent got the pictures up yet...but they will include a circle card, an s fold card and a side step keep checking back to see what is to come...the class is feb 9th from 6-830 and feb 11th the reserve your spot :-)
