Bear in Pot of Gold

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Tuesday.  Today I'm sharing a cut from Miss Kates Cuttables.  My silhouette was used to cut this file out.

Close up of Miss Kates Cuttables file.  I used gold glitter for the gold.

At the same time I used the gold glitter for the belt buckle, green glitter for the shamrock and glossy accents for the belt.  I used my white gel pen to leave a dot on the nose.

A view of the balloon that comes with the Miss Kates Cuttables file.

I wrapped green ribbon around the black and yellow layers before attaching them to the main card.  My final touch was to add some green rhinestones.
