Irish Eyes with Want2Scrap and Authentique

My daughter is really proud of her Irish heritage AND her green eyes so she absolutely loves to dress up for St. Patrick's Day!   I reached for the Lucky Collection from Authentique and Green Rhinestone Bling from Want2Scrap to document her fashion choices!

I actually started by stenciling a design on white cardstock using 2 different colors of ink, Peeled Paint and Mowed Grass Distress Inks from Ranger.  The Amiens 6x6 stencil I used is part of the Cathedral Collection from artistcellar.
I really love the Lucky Four piece of paper from Authentique.  It looks like it has a delicately stitched swirly shamrock pattern all over a vibrant green background.  I used a semi-circle of the stenciled image and adhered it along the left side of the page.
One side of the Lucky Six paper has a nice set of cards that are easily trimmed out for fans of the Project Life pocket style of scrapbooking.  This little Leprechaun caught my eye so I trimmed out the signs...
...and added them to the top of the layout.  The stenciled design serves as a nice background for the title. Want2Scrap has 72 count rhinestone bling in several colors.  The gems in each pack come in a mix of 3 different sizes: 8mm, 6mm and 3mm.  I chose Light Green and used the tiny rhinestones to accent the edge of the stenciled design and placed an 8mm right in the center.
I started this final embellishment cluster by trimming out the Irish postage stamp and the banner from the Lucky Two paper:

Happy St. Patrick's Day and I hope you find some time to play today!  Susie
