A Lucky Leprechaun

I created this fun card awhile ago and hadn't posted him. We have two (twins) St. Patty's Day's birthdays in the family. I am always struggling to come up with something fun for a birthday card for them.

This year I decided to pull out this cute leprechaun which I have had forever and never used.  I paired him with the fun mushrooms from Cornish Heritage Farms and added a few dragonflies. 

The colors were from a previous CR84FN challenge and I love the greens and blues together they make such a lovely color palette. 

I will add a cute sentiment from the Pure Innocence set about having a magical day and it will be ready to go!

We are planning on going away for spring break to warm weather (Yeah!) but means I have to get caught up on some stamping projects. Of course nothing I can share right now. :)

Thanks for stopping by!
