Happy St Patrick's Day! Kiss Me I'm Irish!

Don't! Coz I'm not, but that's what they say, isn't it! The only day I can wear my St Patrick's T shirt and I can't find, never mind, it probably doesn't fit me any more ~ not that I'm fatter this year, (of course not! sez me as I crunch on another curly-wirly) it's just shrunk a little, that's all! in the wash!
Last year I made a St Patrick's card, so I thought I would do so this year too. I've used the same digi, Leprechaun on a Toadstool and as before, some lovely freebie papers from Summer Driggs, only these are different. There's still a rainbow though, as I feel there has to be a rainbow on a card with a Leprechaun, because that's where Leprechauns find their pots of gold!
So, I used, one blank pearl card, edged with a black Promarker, (saves matting and layering and card!) and 'A little spring in your step' kit freebie papers From Summer Driggs, you'll find Summertime Designs Here.
I covered the card first in some lovely green flowery paper, which you can't really see, so there's a bit of that in side the card too. Then layered the rainbow paper, then the green spotted paper and then the little rainbows and the Leprechaun. I used a PGN digi so just printed him straight onto the pink rainbows. I was going to 3D him, but my printer jammed... and didn't print the second leprechaun. Never mind, I think it has enough layers!
The little Shamrock/clover button came back with me from my trip to Seattle USA a few years back, so it's well travelled! I've added a few green beads to add a bit more texture. I chose the daisy chain ribbon as it goes from pink to green and I wanted to use as much green as I could for a few challenges I'd found.
The flowers I punched out with a Woodward punch. One of them has a bit of gold netting added to it, which was once part of a posh Christmas cracker. There's also loads of Stickles and micro fine glitter added too..
The Font I used is a freebie. It's called Fluffy Slacks BTN, you can Download it HERE
Well I think that's it... I do love the inside, in fact I did the inside first. I've left it blank, as I'm not quite sure where it's going yet!
