Lucky to Know You - Happy St. Patrick's Day!

It's Tuesday and another sketch challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches!  When I saw the sketch for this week I immediately thought of this die.  And I love St. Patrick's Day!  My Irish mother always celebrated it in a big way.  So the die, the sketch and the week of St. Patrick's day all just seemed to come together.
The sketch:
I created the card using Strathmore Mixed Media paper.  I first cut the sentiment and then watrecolored the images.  The die cut sentiment is then inlaid back into the negative space for a subtle look.  I wanted to keep the card CAS.

I stamped images from three different stamp set.  Then I used ZIG Kuretake Clean Color Brush Pens and an aqua painter to color the images.
To finish the card, I used a shimmer pen on the shamrocks, hearts and flowers, and added enamel glitter dots. 

Stamps: MFT Lucky, Lawn Fawn Hats Off to You, Stamps of Life - unknown name (I think it was a bonus set)
Die: Simon Says Stamp Lucky to Know You
