Top of the morning to ya and Happy St. Patty's Day!!!
It is Saturday so that means a new challenge at Our Creative Corner. Our hostess this week is the fabulous Anita Houston from the The Artful Maven Haven and she has a fun challenge for us this week. Here it is in her own words:
 As luck would have it today's challenge falls on St. Patrick's Day! Ah, the luck of the Irish, or so some say. Make a card or tag with some sort of bingo card on it, and use the color green somewhere on the project. 

 I searched online a bit and found a Bingo card that I could print out and went from there. 
I thought since it was St. Patrick's Day I would just make a card with that theme.
I made my shamrock using the Fashionable Hearts Embosslits Die and the clover flowers are made using the bird punch.

I added some rhinestones to the flower and shamrock centers and used some white satin ribbon across the bottom. The DSP is wild wasabi and from the patterns pack. the sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.

Be sure to check the Our Creative Corner Blog 
to see what the rest of the design team came up with for this fun challenge. 
I hope you can find some time to play along and if you do, don't forget to link it up over on the Our Creative Corner Blog so we can all see it!

Thanks for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
