SDC-236 St. Patrick's Day

What better way to spend St. Patrick's Day than making a tag for SDC236?!
Jackie is our hostess this week and here's what she had to say about her challenge:

 "St Patrick's Day was lucky for me, I married my husband on this date, so I would like to see the luck of the Irish in your projects. Such as lucky clovers"

Well Happy Anniversary to you and your hubby, Jackie!

I got a stamp order yesterday from Stampotique. It was the stamps I chose from my winning the $30 monthly drawing back in January, so I decided to put two of those new stamps to use today. I chose Roc Nicholas' Fling Pig and Stacked Boxes.  I started with a black tag and added a piece of green striped scrapbooking paper. Then I added Wendy Vecchi's lush Metallic Gold Embossing Paste through Tim Holtz's Gothic stencil. I stamped the words on the stacked boxes. Flying Pig is colored using Dyan Reaveley's Dylusions Inks. 

And OF COURSE I had to dye my fingers just a bit green for the occasion as well!
