Cardz TV Challenge#25~ Luck of the Irish!

Happy Friday my friends! Today starts a brand new challenge at Cardz TV and this is going to be a super fun challenge because its honoring Saint Patrick's Day! I am not Irish but I love this Holiday! Green everywhere, lots of laughter, good brew and a shamrock or two! So here is what I came up with for this challenge..........

Cardz TV Ch# 25 "Luck of the Irish"
Make a card, layout or craft project using stamped, digital, or
 electronically cut Shamrocks or Leprechauns.
Starts: Fri, Feb 22
Ends: Thurs, Mar 7 @ Noon EST
Prize: 1 set of Cardz TV Stamps 

Here is my project for this challenge:
I used my Pazzles machine to cut out the pot of gold and I made a cute matching 3X3 card to go with it. The pot of gold is a treat box that I will fill up with some green M&M's (my daughter's favorite candy) and give to my daughter for Saint Patty's Day. 

I cut the Pot of Gold out using some Bazzill black cardstock. For the gold and the shamrocks on the outside, I used Core'dinations paper. I used some Glitz ultra fine glitter and added that to the shamrock and the gold to give it some sparkle. I cut the golden yellow tag out on my pazzles at 2 1/2 inches and tied it on with some twine that I then added to the ribbons. The ribbons that I used were just some ribbons that I got at Really Reasonable Ribbon. The sentiment is from Cardz TV Stamps, "Happy Days". 
The cute 3x3 card front uses the "I'm so lucky" sentiment from the "Fun and Games" stamp set, also from Cardz TV and here is a peek at the inside......  Here I used the same "Happy St. Patrick's Day" sentiment that I used on the pot of gold and the "Kiss me" sentiment is from the "Hugs & Kisses" set. I cut out those cute little  shamrocks using the pazzles and embossed them using my swiss dots embossing folder.

Here are the Cardz TV stamp sets that I used in today's project:
