Cooking with Cricut: St. Patty's Day Challenge

Ugh! I have been so sick this week! I haven't got a thing done! Luckily for me, I acutally broke my normal pattern of procrastination and had this weeks challenge assignment done a few weeks ago!

This week's challenge over at CWC is to create a project that is St. Patrick's Day or Rainbow themed.  I'm not really much for making St. Patty's Day projects, but who doesn't love a rainbow?!?

Here is what I've come up with. The card is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  The rainbow and clouds are from the Once Upon a Princess cartridge and are cut at 3". I cut the little cloud that the sentiment is stamped on free hand. The stamped sentiment is from a clear acrylic Inkadinkado stamp set called Friendly Advice. I used Stickles to add some fun to the clouds and googly eyes as well.  The rainbow and clouds are popped up on some foam dimensional adhesive to add some depth.

Supplies used: Patterned papers: My Minds Eye, Kaisercraft, sei, Chatterbox, Scenic Route; Cardstock: American Crafts; Scallop Edge Punch: EK Success; Glitter: Stickles, Stamps: Inkadinkado; Ink: Versafine; misc: googly eyes, brads, black marker.

Now I must apologize for the the terrible photo quality. My good camera has gone off to the camera hospital for repairs and I am left using my old point and shoot camera and praying for some nice natural light. Unfortunately it has been pretty gloomy around here and so this is the best quality I could get with some help from FotoFlexer ;)

I hope what you have seen here has inspired you to make something of your own to suit this theme. Please add your work to this weeks design challenge on the CWC blog!
