Hambo Hoedown Challenge #6 and S&S Sketch #30

I absolutely LOVE the Hambo Hoedown weekly challenges!  This week we received this cute little leprechaun hamster and were asked to use GOLD on our layout.  My big challenge was that I didn't have any gold paper, so I incorporated gold by using some gold metallic paint I had to "ink" the edges of the image.  I liked how the card came together in the end.  The paper is Basic Grey and the "lucky" stamp I found in the clearance section of Hobby Lobby just yesterday!  I used Sketch #30 from the OWH Stars and Stamps blog.  Unfortunately, the OWH St. Pat's Day deadline has already passed, so maybe my mom will be the "lucky" recipient of this card!

Card Makin' Mamas - Something Green 
Delicious Doodles - Use Green
Fairy Knoll Challenge - St. Patrick's Day
If the Shoe Fits - St. Patrick's Day
