St. Patty's Day Card

The entire pot is gold but with flash and cameras it just looks yucky!

Here is a fun St. Patrick's day card I made this morning while watching MORE SNOW fall.  I don't think we will EVER see grass again but at least there is some green on this card.

The hat is cut using A Child's Year.  The shoes and pot of gold are cut using Paper Doll Dress Up.

I embossed the hat using my Stars Fiskars embossing plates. 

For the hat I used foam dots to make it stick out off the page.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog!  I love reading comments and tips. :)

This card is for a few challenges.  I enjoy trying to combine elements, it makes it more of a challenge.  For the Peachy Keen Challenge I had to have the banner.  I REALLY struggled with what to do with that.  I redid things about 30 times and was just about to give up when I got this one.

Over at Cricut Cardz Challenge you were to make a St. Patrick's Day card with no shamrock.  So I used my Gypsy to get rid of the shamrock on the hat.

Then at The Paper Variety you are challenged to do the "Sew Much Fun" theme and have some real or faux stitching.  I actually saw this challenge, that a fellow addict sent me , and thought there was no way I could pull it off.  Turns out I had fun with it.

Dina is having her first blog challenge over at Crazy for Cricut go on over and support her there!

Check out "Just Green It" at DYSU

Again, THANK YOU for visiting!!!  I think I will go make more projects so I can tell hubby I was too busy to clean today. :)
