3 in 1: A card for a friend, A challenge & A homemade mini wobble

I have 5 friends that have St. Patrick's Day birthdays.  This one is for my Leprechaun friend Teresa.  (I can post this because she doesn't know anything about my blog.)  I'm also going to enter it in the Peachy Keen Challenge Sketch #45.   I don't care too much for entering challenges so I don't do very many, but I do enter every once in a while.   What's to lose if they're random draw, right?
I realized after I posted this pic. that I haven't finish the card yet.  Got a few more little finishing details to add.  Hubby is off work today & is waiting for me to hurry up & get ready so we can go out for the day.  Yayyy! for getting to spend the day having fun with him, but he's rushing me, grrrr.
What I'm really excited about is my homemade mini wobble I made to make the little guy above be able to do an Irish jig.  My real Wobbles were too big so I made a smaller version using the thin wire that I pulled out of some "wired" ribbon.  It works great!  I can't remember the exact links I watched but there are several video tutorials on how to make wobbles.  I just modified what I saw from a couple of those.
Happy day everyone- be sure to do something nice for someone else & it'll come back to you.
