Happy 10th Anniversary on St. Patrick's Day

To those who celebrate it: Happy St. Patrick's Day!

A good friend asked me to make a card for her son and daughter in law's 10th Wedding Anniversary which was on St. Patrick's Day. I used a sentiment from TLC, Create and patterned paper. The sentiment is hard to see behind all the sequins in my shaker heart. I put a sticker on the other heart. Naturally I had to include a shamrock and ribbons.  The sequins are gold and there is gold in the bottom ribbon which did't photograph well.
