Good Luck........{Trendy Twine}

Good Morning Trendy Twiners!!!!

This month the Trendy Twine DT is spotlighting two of our green twines:
Limeade which is a bright green twisted with white
Totally Limeade which is a solid bright green.
Both of these are AWESOME and perfect for all your St. Patty's Day projects and/or those fun Spring inspired projects!

I have another CAS card to share today based on the current Trendy Twine Challenge.

The Challenge......
Good Luck with Trendy Twine
and must include the following....
~ Sentiment "good luck" or "best wishes"
~ The color green
~Trendy Twine**

**If you do not have Trendy Twine, use hemp, jute, 
embroidery thread, or yarn only; NO ribbon
(no other brands of bakers twine)**
Deadline is 11:59 p.m. central time, Friday, March 28th. 

Project must be new for the challenge.

St. Patrick's Day is going to be a fun day for me....I am coordinating the Teacher Appreciation Luncheon and we are having a St. Patty's Day party (minus the green beer...LOL)
I usually make a thank you treat for the teacher's to walk out with but this year, since we were looking for something else fun to do, we are giving each of the teacher's a scratch off ticket.... so I am making 65 more of these cards to put the ticket in.
Like I said above, since I am making so many of these cards, I went with a CAS design, one that can be massed produced.
I used a Bazzill Black card base cut to a 4x4 card size.
The sentiment is one I had in my stash....believing it is from Studio G (?) and I heat embossed it using some White Deliquesce embossing powder.
The adorable clover is a freebie that I picked up over at Paper Smooches and using my Silhouette Designer Studio I filled the image with some digital paper from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbon.
Once the image was colored in, I printed all of them out and punched them all using my 2" circle punch.
Finally to finish my card off, I cut 2 slots, one on the top of my card and one on the bottom and wrapped the Totally Limeade Trendy Twine around the card front. 
Those slots will  help to hold the twine in place eliminating the need to tape it down, plus I think it looks neat when you open the card and see a bit more color on the inside flap.

Here are the 2 spotlighted colors this month!
Make sure to pick them up..they are on sale all month long!!
