Cricut Cardz Challenge #63

This weeks Cricut Cardz Challenge is to make a St. Patrick's Day card using any cartridge but with no shamrocks. I didn't have any cartridges with St. Patricks day but here is what I came up with. It's an A2 size card, white mat was ran through the cuttlebug and the green mat I punched the top with Fiskars Threading Water Punch. The black pot was cut from Doodlecharms and I just cut the handle off. The coins were cut from a digi stamp I had and I stickled them with gold. I used chalk to do the rainbow and I cut a harp from the computer. Please leave a comment, I love reading them.
