Luck of the Irish

This is my St. Patrick's Day entry for the crafting contests.  I created it for my husband who is bound to a wheelchair and in a nursing home.  He enjoys receiving mail often.  I felt a colorful card would put a smile on his face!

I used the Cricut cartridge "St. Patrick's Day" for the rainbow and pot of gold and the Cricut/CTMH cartridge Art Philosophy for the background.  I used CTMH white paper for rainbow and black paper for pot.  The rainbow is colored with CTMH colored pencils and the gold is embossed with the CTMH dot embossing folder.  I used a cotton pad to rub Topiary ink on the card surrounding the background.

A great big thank you to  Katie from Katie's corner for the new ideas that she showed at a CTMH party this past weekend.  I would never have thought about using a cotton pad to rub stamp pad ink on a card.

My card is going to the following challenges:
