A St. Patty's Day wish for all of you

     At Papercraft Star we're getting a jump on St. Patrick's Day so we want to see those St. Patty Day project for this week's challenge.  What do you think about this fellow?  I don't think I would want to mess with his pot of gold.  LOL  This fun image is from Elizabeth Dulemba and has been colored in Copics.  I found the shamrocks online.  Kids coloring pages are great for those extra little elements.  I just resized it several times, colored them with Copics, and cut them out.
     Here's a pic of the card inside and this goes out to each and every one of you.  :-)
  We'd love to have you play along this week.  Our linky is open until 6:00 a.m. EST on Monday morning.  Pop over the the PCS blog and check out what our sweet Jinny has come up with to showcase the amazing digital images you can find at out sponsors etsy shop, The House Across the Bay.
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
