The challenge this week over at ScrapTiffany is LUCK. Lots of great projects from the DT. Check them out and then play long yourself. You'll be glad you did.
My BF from HS is having a birthday this week, so I thought she'd love this card.

(Sorry for the poor photos. It's been cloudy and rainy here all weekend.)
That shamrock was made using one of my most favorite supplies: Tacky Tape. You've probably seen or own strips of the tacky tape, but did you know it comes in sheets? Send a sheet through your Cricut and now you have a custom die cut that's sticky on both sides. Stick one side to your card and put flock, glitter or beads on the other side. Love it!!
When I use glitter on the tacky tape, I like to use 2 or 3 colors together to give a gradient effect. It looks really cool in person.
This card also fits the Corrosive Challenge #55, the Just Buggin Challenge and the Raise the Bar Challenge.
