Top o' the Morning to Ye...
I always do a little distressing with ink and add embossing, glitter and flocking for texture and interest. There are lots of vintage postcard images available that are copyright-free, so I can always find something new for every holiday.
Here's my version of the St. Pat's banner Kristyn over at Lil' Luna (http://lilluna.com/st-patricks-day-banner/) has created. She has downloadable maps for your background and easy to follow instructions. As usual, I had to do my own take on it. I cut shamrocks out of scrapbook paper, distressed the edges and layered them over a munched-up (hand gathered) coffee filter medallion, and then applied them to a banner shape cut from the maps of Ireland I downloaded from her site.
