Good Luck, Good Health and Happiness!

Hey there blogger buddies!
Phew, we are through February and that much closer to Spring here in the Northeast U.S.   March brings us a holiday celebrated by many and the theme of our first Double D Challenge!  Hint, hint: leprechauns, shamrocks, gold coins.  Yep, you guessed it...ST. PATRICK'S DAY!

We have a fabulous mood board to inspire your projects.  Take a look and let your mojo turn green...

You could be one of our top creative winners or the lucky person to win the prize below chosen by random draw.  Check the Double D Challenge Blog for guidelines and challenge details.

Here's my St. Patrick's Day inspiration...This leprechaun is excited to find his pot of gold!

Good Health, Good Luck, and Happiness

A faux windmill design is the backdrop for this pot of gold focal point.   I added lots of dimension with foam tape to the leprechaun, shamrock and sentiment tag.   The gold metallic shamrock and coins were cut and then adhered into the negative spots on the die cut pot.  I cut a few extra coins and used them to embellish the card corners.  This was such a fun paper collection to work with!
