Luck O' the Irish - Color Dare #234

Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #234: This week’s colors shown in the Photo are Pick Your Greens 1,2,3 or more (Sweet Leaf, New England Ivy, Fern, Willow, Emerald) and White Daisy with Gold as optional.  A color challenge for St. Patty's Day or other.       

We encourage you to use CTMH products; however you may use any products to participate using closest to colors ... join in the have until March 16th.  You don't need a blog to submit your entry...if you are a member of Pinterest you can set up a Folder and link your entry to our Challenge.   

Before I get into the information on my card, I want to share this picture that was included on another DT's (Tracey Pierce, Paper Crafting Princess) blog.  

Chose only two Greens "Fern" and "Sweet Leaf" with Daisy White Card Base and gold glitter tape.  

Don't have any stamps for St. Patrick's Day so off to Cricut Design Space.  Found a nice Shamrock Border Panel which was cut using Fern cardstock and adhered to a White Daisy A2 card base along with a strip of Gold Glitter Tape behind the shamrocks.  Cut a piece of Paper Fundamental "Fern" and placed on the shamrock panel between the shamrock borders.

The Pot of Gold is also a Cricut cut, a little modified, using cardstock and gold glitter paper and added gold sequins to make it appear as coins.  On the inside put in a corner border of shamrocks I had left over from another project.

This is a great St. Pat's Day card Suzanne! I love the gold in the pot, what did you use for it?

Suzanne Reynolds on Friday
Thank you. I cut glitter paper first, and then decided to put gold sequins on it for the coin dimensional look that I get from Close to My Heart.
