Lucky Charm

Do you celebrate St. Patrick's Day?  Or, do you make cards for those who celebrate?

I'm sharing one that could be used for St. Patrick's Day, or any time of the year for someone that you are thankful for.  It's a window card:

and when it's up right:

I love this image of Maneki-neko (Japanese beckoning cat, or fortune cat as I call it) and I wanted it so badly when I first saw it.  Isn't it cute?

I used the partial die cutting technique to cut the circle/window out from the top panel, then the same technique to cut out his upper body.  I would call it complete but thought a circle frame would make it nice.  And yes, it does give the window some more definition and I like it.

I'm entering my card to:
Sentimental Sunday - Anything Goes
Open Minded Crafting - Luck
Simply Create Too - St. Patrick's Day/Green
Jo's Scrap Shack - Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
