Avadares GDT Spot

I was absolutely amazed when I was approached by Teresa to be Guest Designer for Avadares for February.  This is my first Guest Designer spot and I'm honoured that it is with Avadares.  The image for February is a St Patricks themed image.  I've gone with the green colouring theme:

This card is also for the challenges at:

The background paper that I have used for this card comes from a paper pad by DCWV called Lemon Flowers.  The image is from Avadares.

I also cut out a lace threader from another sheet of paper from the Lemon Flowers pack...and then threaded it with some green satin ribbon.  In the original plan, I was going to add a shamrock die-cut but then I couldn't find where I put the die last time I used it! Then I was looking through my box of buttons that I got from my Mum last April (I was actually looking for buttons for another card) and found these celtic knot buttons.  Goodness knows how old they are (probably more than 30 years ) but they were perfect for this card.  I'm pleased now that I couldn't find the shamrock die!  The bow is made from a very pale green organza ribbon.
