St. Patrick's Day card

 As I was getting ready to make some cards for St. Patrick's day a few days ago, I realized I had these shamrocks already cut and ready to go from a few years ago so I decided I would pull them out and try to put them together on a card, I think it turned out pretty cute. I just layered it on some green and white stripped pattern paper and then with some dark green bazzill. Shamrock was cute from Paper Doll Dress Up at 3 and the tag is cut at 1-1/4 from TBBM.
 I used a My Pink Stamper stamp on the inside
I wanted to show you a little tutorial on how I made the little pom pom ball out of twine...

1st- I wound the twine around my fingers about 7 or 8 times and tied a knot around the outside.
        2nd- I snipped all the loops on the ends     
3rd- I stuck my thumb and finger in the "middle" and started squishing down
4th- keep squishing until it lays kind of flat, then I used a glue dot and stuck it on the card
