Pot of Gold Challenge


The March challenge is called Pot of Gold.  This was truly a challenge.  The card had to have certain elements:  stitching, a punched item, ribbon, button/bow/or brad, green color, and several layers.   How to create a pot of gold?  Here is my card.


My pot comes from T3411 Cup of Love.  I used the tea cup and cut off the base and handle to make a pot.  It is colored with Copic markers BG93, BG96, G94, G99, N1, N4.  Then I used gold metalic cardstock and a standard hole punch to make the circles of gold coins.  I popped the pot of gold up on a white circle punched from a 2 1/2 inch circle punch and then a 3" scallopped circle punch.  The paper is Willoughby SWIC, as is the light green ribbon.  My stitches are from T2610 Running Stitches, stamped in Jardin Moss Palette Ink.  The saying, stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink is from T3227 Cowboy Boots..



Now it is your turn.  Link your Pot of Gold card and join the challenge.
