Wishing You A Happy Day - (CTD434)

Hello and Happy Wednesday! It's time for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge!  We've got some fun colors to create with that are perfect for this time of year.
The colors for this week's challenge are green, black and metallic gold but since I only had scraps of metallic gold, I ended up using yellow gold colored cardstock which is completely ok so please don't feel that you can't play along if you don't have the exact colors.  
I used a few of my Lawn Fawn stamp sets to create a St. Patricks Day card for someone special.  I started out by stamping the cute raccoon, hat and four leaf clover from the Holiday Party Animal stamp set then colored them using Copic markers and die cut them out using the Holiday Party Animal Lawn Cuts.  I also stamped two of the little birds from the Chit Chat stamp set, colored them with Copies and die cut them out using the Chit Chat Lawn Cuts. Next I die cut a rectangle for my scene using a MFT Inside & Out Stitched Rectangle die and blended on some tumbled glass distress ink along the top.  I used some new leaf cardstock and the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders Lawn Cuts and attached that to my die cut rectangle.  Then I used the Lawn Fawn Happy, Happy, Happy stamp set and stamped the Happy sentiment on a piece of scrap white cardstock.  I stamped it first in daffodil delight ink and just the bottom in summer sunrise ink and then die cut it out using the Happy, Happy, Happy Lawn Cuts along with an extra die cut happy which I glued together.  I placed the die cut Happy where I wanted it to be but didn't glue it down until after I stamped the rest of my sentiment in black ink.  I added the raccoon to my scene using foam tape, glued on my Happy and the two little birds and using more foam tape I added the rectangle to my card.  For my card base, I used a piece of Doodlebug Designs green gingham paper with a strip of summer sun cardstock along the bottom.
