Happy St. Patty's Day....Made in Minutes {My Creative Time}

Happy St. Patrick's Day 
welcome to another
My Creative Time's~ Made In Minutes!
If you are new to this segment, it is where the MCT DT  shares quick and easy projects using MCT stamps and dies that you can recreate in no time. 

Since it is St. Patrick's Day I have a CAS card to share that took maybe a total of 5 minutes to put together :)
I love using MCT dies with wool felt! The dies cut through the felt so beautifully and the felt adds so much texture and dimension to a card~ don't you think?
So for my card I used the Shamrock Die from the set~ You're my Pot of Gold with some beautiful green felt. I wanted it to be the focal point of my card.
I hot glued the shamrock to my card and then stamped the sentiment using one of the new releases~ I'm a Lucky Girl.
To add some additional embellishments to my card, I used some green sequins that I had in my stash.
The entire card was placed on a Kraft card stock base with a mat of green card stock and another mat of white card stock.

Make sure to check out the other DT member's projects over on Emma's blog~ 
My Creative Time.
I know you will LOVE all the inspiration!

Final thing before I head on out....
Don't forget about the MCT Challenge going on now.....
- Make a project of your choice using different shades of just one color.  (You can use a different color as your base or background - white, black, kraft; just make sure your focal point displays your monochromatic color choice). 
- Deadline for this challenge will be on March 18th @ midnight! 
That's tomorrow!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a GREAT Monday!
