Lucky To Have You Layout

In honor of Saint Patrick's Day, I created this layout with several different challenges in mind.  The title for this layout was cut from the Billionaire Lite cartridge, the shamrocks were cut from Paper Doll Dress Up and the scalloped mat was cut from Elegant Edges.  I welded the title using my Gypsy and cut it out twice to create the layer for the title.
I thought about using a four leaf clover for my layout since four leaf clovers are considered to be lucky, however, a couple of the challenges specifically called for a shamrock so I went with shamrocks instead.
I used coordinating patterned paper to divide the solid green background.  An EK Success border punch was used to create an accent border along the patterned paper.  The flags were hand cut in various lengths.
The shamrocks were cut from glitter paper which is a little difficult to see in the pictures.  I added twine bows made from Twisted Lime Trendy Twine to each of the shamrocks and pop dotted the shamrocks on the scalloped mat.  A little bit of bling was used to accent the mat.
I used my white gel pen to add extra details to the layout.  I used 3 layers of paper to create the photo mats which also helps separate the different patterns in the layout.
