Celebrate The Occasion-"St. Patrick's Day" Challenge!!

Hello Everyone,
Happy Wednesday !!!! Hope everyone is having a great day!
I was trying to come up with something a little different for the challenge #4 over at "Celebrate the Occasion". The theme is "St. Patrick's Day" and to create a card, layout or project. I decided to create a "treat tin" for my friends special poochie. Hope she likes it!! I am happy how this turned out and hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it!!!
I had this tin that tea had came in and thought it would work perfect for this project. I wrapped it with printed paper from Reminisce, cut at 5 x 8 1/2. I attached ribbon to the outer edges of the tin and tacked it down. I cut the poochie at 2 1/4 and the layers from Create a Critter cartridge. I cut the hat at 1 1/4 and the shamrocks at 3 3/4, 1" and 1/2" from Paper Dolls Dress Up cartridge. I added a bow by the collar with twine from Papertreyink. The ribbon and paperclip from Michael's. The used a white signo pen for the sentiment to write "lucky dog"and to do the stitching. I also distressed the paper and around edges of the tin with a stamp pad (walnut stain) from Tim Holtz.

*Also entered in challenge #18 over at craftingwithcristina.com
