And here is the sketch:

I used a white card base for my card. I would have preferred a solid green, but I did not have the appropriate green to go with the DP, so I had to use white. I layered a piece of gold (to represent the pot of gold) and a layer of DP that contains various St. Patrick's Day words. I matted my Irish Blessing onto the gold and used a white dotty card weight for the two fish tails. The background DP is from "The Spring Stack" by DCWV. I don't know the manufacturer of the gold paper nor the pad from which the green and yellow dotty paper comes. The yellow side is the back of the green with white side. 

The fish tails were cut using an Elizabeth Crafts die. The ovals were cut using a Coluzzel template. The corner was punched using a Paper Shapers sold by Stampin' Up punch. The clover punch does not have a manufacturer's name on it.

You are going to love the different examples the DT have made using this sketch. To get a look at all of them, go to the TMS blog.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a happy, crafty week!
