Happy St. Patrick's Day

Get your GREEN on...  Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone and thanks for stopping by to check out my share today.  I'm posting rather late in the evening, but wanted to make sure I got my St. Patrick's Day card posted to my blog.  Todays' share is a card I made for Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge. I also entered it at Lil Red Wagon  challenge #124 - Lucky You.  This week it was a color challenge using green, white and one other color.  I choose gold.  Enjoy!

I started with a white A2 card for my base.  I added gold cardstock cut at 4" x 5-1/4" and layered the green gingham patten paper on top, which was cut at 3-3/4" x 5".  I also cut a strip of green cardstock at 1" x 4-1/4" and added that to the bottom on the card.

I used the Simply Charmed cartridge and cut the <Leprchn2> on pg. 32 at 2-1/2" and layers 1, 2 and 3.  I also used <PotOfGld> on pg. 33 cut at 2-1/2" and layer 2.

To finish this card I sponged black ink on the pot and outlined both the pot and Leprechaun with my black .01 Micron pen.  I used gold adhesive rhinestones on the pot to represent gold, added a rhinestone for the button, as well as three more in varies sizes to the top right corner.  My sentiment stamps are from Close to My Heart.  I tied green bakers twine around the pot and the top of the card with a bow and a fun little pin I found at the Dollar Store finishes off the card.

Catch the Frenzy!
