{happy st. paddy's day}

MSW Card Hop is here. Last day to leave a comment for a chance to win!  :)
Today it is the DT Reveal over at Just Imagine Crafts blog! If you get a chance pop over and see all of the projects from the DT.  Our theme was St. Patrick's Day/Green.  I had the whole rainbow and gold thing stuck in my head and after a couple failed attempts at a card, finally came up with this.
You Are the Gold at the End of My Rainbow

Using Kreaxions 4 in 1 Punch #903 (flowers) with insert A I punched a rainbow of colored carstock (remember ROY G. BIV?).  I cut them into 3/4" strips and backed them all on one sheet of white paper (this makes adhering it to the tube much easier!) I ran the whole thing through my Xyron and then wrapped it around the SRM tube.
An SRM sticker sentiment and clover finish off the top.  I added some Twinery Twine between each color for some texture. I used a roll of Rolos candy to provide the "gold" at the end of the rainbow.  :)

Here is the punched detail up close-isn't it beautiful?
Whatever you do to celebrate today, I hope you get more kisses than pinches!


If you want to be happy, be.
