St Patrick's Day Card-5 Challenges

Had lots of fun making this card.  This little Leprachaun has a contagious smile.  All the Peachy Keen stamped faces are soooo cute!  I do hope to expand on my assortment in the near future.  So much to buy, too little money and not enough room! Well this card looks so much better in person, the sparkle of the card is hard to see with my cell phone pics...Oh well thats the way it goes.  I wanted to make a St Patty's Day Card and the Peachy Keen Challenge 23 was the perfect start.  The challenge colors of green and yellow set the tone. For Kaboodle Doodles  Fancy Fold Challenge 25 I made it a pop up card.  Just Buggin Dry Emboss Challenge was fantastic..I always try to emboss at least one element on all my cards..gotta love that Cuttlebug!  I used Sketch Saturday's Week 91 Challenge for my card layout.  Since the card is truly very sparkly and dazzle's in person I also entered it into Fussy and Fancy Challenge to Dazzle Us.
I used up more of my stash, the paper is sparkly paper, I used some stickles, red and gold embossing powder.  Clear Utee on the buttons of gold to make them more golden and sparkly...oh yeah and really hot!  His little hands I colored gold.  Used my Cricut & Gypsy to cut out the doll,  his pot and the cartouche.  Used the Cuttlebug to emboss the pot and everything yellow with  Swiss Dots. The face was stamped with a Peachy Keen Basic Paper Doll Face stamp from PK570.  Used a Shamrock Charm and a green brad for the pop up pull tag.

I really want to keep this card.  I will give it to my hubbie, that way I can put it into an album layout.  I will just take out the sentiment and replace it with a pic!
Thanks for all the comments, very much appreciated.
