Brought to you by the Color Green...a Cricut Leprechaun

Hi.  Several events are happening this month...my best friend turns 75, spring is coming, we are in the season of Lent, we changed the clock, and St. Patrick's Day comes around.  At the Craft Squad, we are having a blog hop
For some reason, I have had some problems publishing this blog, with my card, but I have found a way around it (hopefully). 
As the saying goes, on St. Patrick's Day, you are suppose to wear your green.  It also makes you think about Ireland and leprechauns.  When I  taught school, this was a day when the kids would come in, wearing their green clothes, and if you didn't wear green, you heard about it!  (This was with 7th and 8th grade students.)  As soon as I heard our title for this blog hop, I knew what I was going to make. 
My Cricut Expression and I have become good friends lately, and I used an older cartridge Paper Doll Dress Up.  I cut out all the parts of the leprechaun using various shades of green.  What do you think?
I had some embellishments from Close to My Heart, which I added to the card.  They just happened to be green.  :)  The grass that my leprechaun is standing on was cut from some green paper and I punched the edges with a Martha Stewart punch.  The title on the top of the car is BELIEVE. 
Inside, I took another piece of green paper, and punched the corners with another Martha Stewart punch, added a shamrock and the magical pot of gold!
You can now continue on the blog hop and visit ==============
