Happy St Patrick's Day!

Ok, this is the last of my St. Pat's cards, they must go in the mail today!
I had been to a scrapbook store I don't get to often in the MSP area and they had this pretty paper with gold on it from the Moxxie St. Patrick's day collection. 
So I had to get a sheet and make a few more cards with it. 

I used one side of the paper with the gold stripes for one card and the back side that was a pretty green with shamrocks all over it. 

I will be linking up this card to the following challenges today...
Cooking with Cricut - St. Pat's and Rainbows challenge
Cardtv- Wearing of the Green challenge
Die Cut Divas color challenge
Wacky Wednesday - St. Patty's Day challenge

Here's How I did it...
Pattern Paper form Moxxie
Gold and white pattern paper for mats from My Minds Eye
Base card measures 4.75"
Scallop Mat/layers cut at 114.3" from Slumber party *
Hat/layers cut at 63.8" from A Child's year*
Shamrock cut at 25.4" from a Child's year*
Sentiment from My Creative Time
Cuttlebug mesh embossing folder
Black ribbon on the hat
* yes, these sizes are correct. I had to increase them a lot on my Gypsy being they are very small images on the cartridge.

What a great card. I can honestly say I have never cut anything at 60 odd inches on my Gypsy... Looks amazing. Thanks for playing with us this week at Cricut Cardz Challenge by Cardz TV. Hope to see you back again soon :)
