STAMPlorations Challenge #41 Theme & Sketch mid-month reminder

Hello crafty friends, and Happy St. Paddy's Day!
I'm looking forward to corned beef and cabbage tonight for dinner. Yum!

I'm popping in to remind you about STAMPlorations March Theme & Sketch Challenge. 

For this card, I went with just the theme. My card base is stenciled using the Dragonfly Waltz ARTplorations stencil. I only used one ink, but went heavy handed towards the top and light at the bottom, to give it an ombre' kind of look. The focal panel is another one I made last summer by inking up an embossing folder with a few Distress Inks, spritzing with water, and laying the paper on top of the inky mess. ☺ It's die cut using the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting dies. 
The flower is made from three stamps using Bloom Factory and Big Bloom Factory. The leaves were made by cutting up one of the stamped flower images. I fussy cut them, rolled the edges up, added a brad in the middle, and adhered using foam squares and glue dots. 
The sentiment is from Fond Expressions 2. I needed some sparkle so I added a row
of rhinestones under the sentiment.

adding pinterest script 3. Changing the Position of the Pin it! button The cool thing about this code is that you have some freedom over where the Pinterest button for Blogger will go over the image. Take a look at the code that you just copied and pasted into the HTML for the word 'center'.
