Bella challenges: Claddagh and Card Challenges

Here are the tag and Card I did for two of the
March Challenges over at 
First this is the card I started for the 
365 Cards Challenge "Blank Space."
I just added some more embellishments. 
Those who know me...probably knew I would have to add stuff...LOL.
I started with a green piece of card stock that was cut 5" by 10" and a strip of 1" by 5".  I also used a piece of white card stock that I punched and placed under the yellow cardstock.   I used Pam Maas sketch for inspiration.
 I used some flower charms that I got on sale at Joanns.  I inked all the yellow card stock pieces with Scattered Straw by Ranger.  I  used Peeled paint on the white and green cardstock.  I then when over all pieces with vintage photo.
I used my Crop O Dile Big bite to punch holes in the strip of yellow
cardstock.  Added the green cording and swirl of pearls.  Shamrock diecuts and I outlined all the edges and die cuts with perfect medium pen and perfect pearls in copper.
More goodies inside.  Yay!
I did add a lot of pieces of wire with beads clear and leaf shaped.
I made a little bookmark that has shamrocks on it.  It slides into a little flap I created by folding over the piece from the front.  Of course I added my favorite...a vintage pearl button.  
Some more goodies on the Right under the Irish Blessings piece.
A saying of where to find the Four leaved Clover and a little vintage post card image of a Leprechaun.  Of course my tag with the Irish Blessing and Claddagh.
I used my Silhouette SD software to design the tag.  I used the "Print and cut feature" to create this tag.  I used a Red glittery embossing powder, gold and blue embossing powders all on the Claddagh image.
