TAC's Pot of Gold Challenge

I did it! OK! Fine, we did it! I finished my pot of gold card today with a lot of help from my friend Rhonda. I couldn't have done it without her! See, I am feeling a little under the weather and I can't make decisions alone at the moment. Rhonda really helped me through this one! My card is super CAS style. I used the darker pink and lighter blue cardstock from TAC Cardstock Caboodles Set B. The rain boots are from TAC's Girls Day Out stamp set. I used Nestablities to cut my rectangle and scalloped rectangle pieces. The dots are white cardstock cut with my Marvy 1/2 inch circle punch. The ribbon is Bazzill and the button is a lucky find from one of the Audrey Embellishment Jars. Play along with the Pot of Gold Challenge this weekend if you have some time. Here's what your card must contain to qualify for the challenge:
Stitching - Either stamped or stitched, your choice.
A punched Item - Punch with a Clever Lever, Spellbinders or other punching tool.
Ribbon
A button and/or a bow and/or a brad.
The color GREEN! Use a little or a lot!
and Layers, use more than one layer of cardstock.
Here's a linky, play along! Happy stamping!
