Cooking With Cricut # 77 St Patrick's Day Challenge

Hello everyone and welcome to the Cooking With Cricut St. Patrick's Day challenge.  The challenge is to use a rainbow or a rainbow color scheme.

The card is a very pale blue.  I used watercolor paper to paint the rainbow background.  The pot of gold and shamrocks are cut from the PAPER DOLL DRESS UP cartridge.  I tied a tiny gold rope around the pot.

  I created the sentiment on the computer.  It is inked with pale blue.  I finished the card with a gold ribbon and bow.   This is a very simple card.  I wanted the painted rainbow to be a focal point of the card.  

Please join us at Cooking With Cricut this week for a fun St. Patrick's Day challenge.  You may be lucky and win the challenge!!
