Here is my ATC for Day 1!

I created my festive green background by rubbing multiple layers of chalk all over my white cardstock with cotton balls.  Pretty easy to get just about any color background you need with these chalks.  Ok, I must admit that I do not have any St.Patrick's Day themed stamps.  But, I was browsing Marh Fish's - Stampin Pretty Blog, and I saw this beautiful card that she designed with a heart punch.  Now, I know this may not be news to some, but it was a sigh a relief for me!  LOL Thanks Mary!  I also embossed my hearts with a cuttlebug embossing folder, and my sentiment is computer generated.
