Lucky

For my Design Team post for SP & Co I decided to use this new Lucky stamp. And since the current Stamping with Sami challenge (SWS #8) is to use a distressed technique, I did that too to play along.
 I stamped my background using the Bold Houndstooth background stamp in Crushed Olive Distress Ink. I then aged the white paper with Old Paper ink and inked the edges in Pumice Stone ink.

I stamped the clover in Forest Moss and inked the edge with Crushed Olive and matted with a scrap of aged brown paper. All the edges of paper were distressed before being adhered together.
I then stamped the sentiment in Black Soot on a long stip of textured cardstock. I cut out the notches on the ends, inked the edges with Pumice Stone, and folded it into a scroll banner. Then I adhered with foam to give it dimension and added the green I-rock bling to add a bit more flair.
 And here is my distressed Lucky card! Thanks for stopping by.

I love your Lucky card! I love your sentiment banner and houndstooth is a favorite background of mine!

I need to get cracking at my St. Patty's Cards! I am way behind this year!
