Getting Ready for St Patrick

Put away the reds and pinks, and get out the greens (and oranges).  It's time for a St Patrick's Day card.  I found this month's challenge at Some Odd Girl Blog.  See it here.  And thought I'd play.  It's a sketch challenge.


So I got the "Flag Wavin Mae" digi from their store.  http://www.someoddgirl.com/index.php/shop and came up with this card.
