A Touch of Gold...

Hi All!  Well you know that I already made my St. Patty's Day cards, but I just saw the current Cricut Circle Challenge #124  and decided to whip up just one more specifically for this challenge.
The challenge specifications were to use rainbow OR a monochromatic green color scheme and they wanted to see us add a touch of gold to our project.

I created this Luck of the Irish ensemble pretty much the same way as I created my previous ones, accept  that I added several little touches of gold. I did my BG as I did previously, this one I chose to use the Hero Arts Friends Definition stamp and then I stamped over it with little shamrocks from the Flourishes' Irish Blessings stamp set with gold pigment ink.  I used my Cricut to cut my Shamrocks using the Celebrate with Flourish cartridge and my Ovals with the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge as I did before, but this time I edged most of my pieces with my Sakura Gold Metallic jellyroll pen before layering them together.  I also created an extra cute little shamrock charm edged with gold and covered with gold glitter glue to tie together with a fun little gold bow to my Impression Obsession sentiment. 

Here's a another little shot of my card that shows off a bit more of the gold touches and gold glitter.  I know it's still hard to see but it looks really great in person.  One of the things on my to do list is to invest in a good digital camera. Believe it or not,  I am kind of embarrassed to say so, but all of my blog pictures are taken with my cell phone.  I know, crazy huh?.. 8-)

For more details on my Luck of the Irish cards, you can click on my Blog Archive link titled  Luck of the Irish, or just scroll down, it was only a few posts ago. LOL

In the meantime, I hope you all are ready for St. Patty's day and are armed and ready with your favorite green attire.  Have a great day & Thanks so much for dropping by. 8-)
