Hoppy St. Patrick's Day -- Double Trouble #133

This is my Design Team project for Double Trouble Challenge #133 "Pinch Proof" partnering with Inspiration Station's Challenge #47 focusing on the color Green.  Did you know that wearing green on Saint Patrick's Day is supposed to make you invisible to leprechauns? They will pinch you as soon as you come upon their radar if you don't wear green! And I didn't want to get pinched.  

Twisted Sister's optional twist was to use a plaid and/or checker and I used both. Didn't have so far to go for a plaid because it was sitting on my desk... a  green plaid paper that was already adhered to a card base which I never used. Then I went to my little plastic bin labled St. Patty's Day and found small pieces of Doodlebug patterned papers and cute images and sentiments. The checkered paper matched the plaid perfectly, along with cute images and sentiments.  Layered each with Evergreen cardstock and then adhered to the plaid card base using glue and 3D foam tape.  Needed something more in the bottom corner so added gold sequins and my card was done.  

I think my thought process on what I was going to do took longer than putting this card together.  I was Hoppy with it.
