Making it with Meslyn March Challenge

woohoo another month has started so that means another Making it with Meslyn challenge and it was my turn to set the theme....sorry its late posting, I thought I had done that already but the post was sitting there in draft form oops!!
Seeing as I grab any excuse to use green or red or both, and its March, I thought a good luck or St Patrick's Day theme would be great so my entry is a middle step card..
Its made with an image from a Darcie's stamp I won on eBay last year (I love these stamps and they are hard to get so if you like them just save a search on eBay and bid in hope LOL).

The papers are from Nitwit collections called Bit O Blarney and the nicest green St Patricks themed papers I could find.. really really like them and will use them again I am sure.
Also used an EK Success Swiss cheese deep edger punch to go with the dotty paper and some swirly bits cut with spellbinders dies.
Lots of stickles and some distressing with memnento dye ink.
On the closeup above you can see some clover buttons which I think are made by buttons galore and I threaded cream string through them for some texture...
some more stickles..............!
and finally, a closeup showing the step part of the card - the flap lifts up to reveal a panel inside to write a message.
