St Patrick's Day green

I know it's late in the day now, but Happy St Patrick's Day to any Irish readers of my blog.

Today's 365 cards challenge (day 17) is ad inspired, with this green picture:

For the last or two I've been making a variety of cards ready for selling for charity - too many to blog, but this is one of them - an A5 aperture card in green, with what I imagine Irish fields to look like (because I've never been to Ireland).

The first picture is a scan of the card to show it closed and the second one is a photo to show the picture on the inside.

As it's St Patrick's day there are a lot of challenges still celebrating the day, so I'm linking for:
