St. Patty's Day Birthday/ challenge card

Hi there! Thanks for taking the time to stop by. I hope you're all doing well. I've got another quick card to share with you.
 This one I made for my Dad. His birthday is on St.Patricks Day. This year, now that I've got my own cricut, I decided instead of buying two different cards to make a "two for one" card myself :)

 I've been seeing this cute little leprechaun from the Simply Charmed cartridge on several cute projects recently and knew I wanted to use him :) The sentiment I printed up on my computer. I added the buttons to add some more orange to the card, but I'm not too sure I like them now...either way, I'm sure my dad will like it :)

  • leprechaun from Simply charmed cut at 3 1/2 inches
  • clovers from Celebrate With Flourish cut at 3 1/2, 3, and 2 inches
  • scallop sentiment cut is from the Storybook cartridge (accent blackout/shift letter V at 2 3/4, 2 1/2, and 2 1/4 inches) 
Since it's been so long since I've entered any challenges, and since there are SO many going on right now with a "St. Patty's Day" or "green" theme, I decided to enter it into the following challenges:
