St Patrick's Day Card

Good evening!  I know I'm a little early with a St Patrick's Day card already, though it is only a few weeks away.  We got about 10 inches of snow from the storm that passed through here Monday night and Tuesday.  Add that to the snow we got last week and there's nearly 20 inches of snow out there.  We have snow piles at the end of our driveway that are seriously as tall as I am!  I can't remember the last time we got so much snow!!

I'm not used to all this snow and cold weather.  I'm ready for Spring to be here!  I think that was part of my motivation for making this card.  St Patrick's Day means the middle of March, which means Spring and warmer weather!!

This week over at Die Cuttin Divas they're hosting a Tic Tac Toe challenge.  Here is the grid we were given for the challenge:
I had a number of different ideas going through my head when I was trying to decide what to do.  Finally I decided to go horizontally through the middle and use gems, three pattern papers and stitching (faux) on my card.

Thanks for coming by to take a look and here's to warmer weather!!  

Solid cardstock from Bazzill
Pattern papers from The Paper Studio
Shamrock from Paper Doll Dress Up cut at 3.75 inches
Sentiment from My Pink Stamper's Happiest Moments set
White Sakura gel pen
i-rock gems
