Happy Birthday Matt & Happy St. Patty's Day

Wishing my grandson Matt a very Happy Birthday and A Happy St. Patty's Day.  Hope your day is extra special because the day you were born was a very special and happy day. It seems just like yesterday you were a baby and now you are all grown up with a family of your own.  Time passes way too quickly and before you know it your boys will be grown. Cherish them while you can!  We love you!

I'm entering this card in a few challenges (yep, I'm doing 5 this time and probably last time) as it will be the only card I get made for St. Pat's Day and here they are:

StampFairy Challenge - "Show us your green"
Critter Sketch Challenge Blog - Monochromatic Green
Sentimental Sundays - Go Green - the color or recycle
Delicious Doodles Challenges - "Use Green for Saint Patrick's Day"
Allsorts Challenge - "The Luck O' The Irish" (we got Matt)

This adorable little vintage boy came from Magic Moonlight Free Images and I cut him out twice for added dimension.  Everything else on the card is from my stash.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you leave me a comment so I'll be sure to come visit and see what's new with you.  Be sure to click on the link to my Blog-anniversary candy and leave a comment to enter.  This candy is for followers only so I hope you've found something here to inspire you to become a follower and want to come back again.

Have a very happy and safe St. Pat's Day and don't drink too much green beer or your tongue will turn
"Hugs" Carol

Wow hun, Matt is going to adore this card you've made for him. How lucky to be born on such a wonderful day. I do agree they children all grow way to fast...maybe a stack of books on their head might slow them up. Beautiful card and you embellishments are so pretty. Go the Green! *Hugs*
