St. Patrick's Day

Hello, fellow bloggers! I hope everyone is faring well with all these weather pattern changes. It feels like you don't really know what to wear until you are ready to go outside. Today I present to you a card that I created for St. Patrick's Day. I am not Irish, but this is a day that has a special meaning to me. It was my father's birthday. Even though he is not with us anymore, I always think of him and wish him a happy birthday. I hope you enjoy my creation!
