It's Celebration Time Over at Cute Card Thursday!

Hello friends!
Swinging by to share a new challenge with you over at
The challenge this week is "Celebrations"!  Looking forward to seeing your lovely creations!

I thought that with St. Patrick's Day tomorrow, that this would be a good one to add to the "celebrations" list...so this is what I've come up with for this challenge:
I thought it would be fun to pull out the MFT Beast Friends stamp set and color one of them in a greenish color for St. Patty's Day!   I used the one "beast" with his hand sticking out so that I could add a gold coin in it.  Thanks with the help of my Cricut Explore, I was able to cut out a pot of gold with coins to put inside as well as a fun little hat for my beastie to wear.  :)  I actually used a bow tie from a different stamp set (Lawn Fawn Snow Cool), cut it out and attached it to the hat.  I colored it in along with the strip on his hat with a green metallic gel pen.

For the background on my card front, I pull out my new Ranger Distress Oxide Inks and made a cool background with the Broken China and Faded Jeans colors.  For the rainbow, I cut the strips from the MFT Die-namics End of the Rainbow dies with some white card stock and a piece of Stick-It double sided adhesive sheet over it.  I glued each piece to my card front and then peeled back the adhesive from one strip, then added the glitter color.  I moved on to each strip until I had them all covered with the different glitter colors.  I cut out two clouds from the same die set.  One I added in front of the rainbow for the pot of gold and the beastie to stand on, and the other at the top of the card front.  I then took the Lawn Fawn Puffy Clouds Border dies to cut out a piece for the bottom of my card front.  The pot of gold/beastie cloud was popped up with foam tape over the cloud border.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the MFT Delicious Birthday (Not in shop, so it may be retired?) at the bottom left corner of the cloud border.

Here's a close-up view of the beastie:
The camera captured the sparkle of the rainbow glitters along with the metallic shine on his hat.  You can also see the gold "coins" that are in the pot with all the dimension.  I cut the coins out with some gold foil card stock.  The one in his hand is a bit blurry, but you can still see the shine! :)

I thought this would be good for St. Patrick's Day or even a birthday (if they have one on St. Patty's Day!) or for someone that just has a cause for celebrating! :)

I had fun getting creative with this one!  Hope you like it too!
Be sure to stop by the challenge blog and check out the rest of the inspiration and be sure to play along with us this week!   We love seeing your creations!

Thanks for dropping by this morning!
Please stay tuned....I have another post coming shortly!
