A Little Green Card

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Here is a little green card to celebrate. 

This is the first time I tried a diamond fold card and I love how it turned out.  However, I'm also learning what photographs well and lots of angles just don't do it. 

This little black and gold charm is actually an old earring.

Last fall I made some jewelry to participate in several craft shows and so I have lots of beads which I love using in my cards.

All the supplies I used for this card were just things from my stash.

Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day!
