Happy Green and Gold!

Hi all !!
Happy St.Patrick's Day!

Today is also my bestie's birthday!
She was born on this lucky day, and her name is Megumi, which means blessing in Japanese. Pretty special, don't you think!? 

I wasn't planning on playing this challenge, I was partied out with them last week! LOL But, I needed a birthday card for Megumi, and I always tease her by saying Happy St.Patty's Day first instead of Happy Birthday, so this was perfect!

They do not celebrate St.Patrick's day in Japan, maybe some Irish immigrants do, but I did not even know about it until I came to the US.  So naturally, they don't make green beverages and food but I have told Megumi about green beers. 
On her card, I made green bubbly with the Gumball Green Emboss Powder (Retired). I love Gumball Green, it's the green Ms.Kate Spade uses! 

Those yummy gold bubbles are Gumdrops from Your Next Stamp, I am totally hooked!

I am obsessed with sentiment dies lately.
These two are from two different sets, but don't they look lovely together!?

I see a lot of cards with those skinny strings swirled up lately, and they're usually tucked in behind something. I love the look of them, and Nina gave me this beautiful gold one so I thought I'd give it a try. What do you think?

My notes...

Stamp: Embellished Events, Avery Elle Brushed
Paper: Whisper White, Gumball Green, Gold Foil Sheets
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Versamark
Accessory: YNS Gold Nugget Glittered Gumdrops, Gold Thread
Tool: heat Tool, Gumball Green Stampin' Emboss Powder, YNS Scripty Words Die Set
