Party Time Tuesday Challenge PTT# 58

This week at Party Time Tuesday the challenge is to create a card with the theme of “riches at the end of the rainbow.”  Since I believe that it is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow (how original) I chose this cute digi from Meljen Designs called Leprechaun Gold for my card. I used a variation of the easel card for the base.  The pattern for the easel card can be found on the Split Coast Stampers web site:

I added colour to the image with my Copics and colour to the gold pieces with a gold glitter pen. Next I added some decorative gold pieces, a ribbon and some shamrocks to complete the card.  I think this card is ready to be sent to one of my grandson for St. Patrick’s Day. 
Thanks for stopping by to take a look at my creation.  Have a creative day.
