Happy St Patrick's Day!

Have you caught a Leprechaun yet?  Well I have, this delightful little fellow comes from Pink Cat Studio!  I printed him out, coloured him with my Copics and added some boggly eyes and some sparkly gold Stickles to his pot.

This card is not your normal everyday card, it holds a treasure of it's own!  It has a plastic test tube of green Skittles!

It took a bit of tweeking (read 3 pieces of green bazzill and several handfuls of skittles) until I got the measurements right for the test tube and card, but I did it!
As you can see the card doesn't sit flat, as it's made to incorporate the test tube.  I used a sketch from The Sweet Stop to decorate the front of the card.  I used pre-scalloped paper, darker green Bazzill and I fussy cut the little Leprechaun and raised him on 3D foam dots.
