Make A Colorful St. Patricks Day Card

The girls and I always make our own 
St. Patrick's Day cards.

This year we have created colorful postcards to send to our friends and family. 
These cards are really easy and fun to make out of basic watercolors.
Using each of the colors of the rainbow ( ROYGBIV) we carefully painted our watercolor stripes along a piece of 5"x7"  watercolor paper.
We then let it dry and scanned it into the computer.

Next we added one of our favorite quotes to each one of our cards in Photoshop. 
We all chose different quotes. 
Our finished postcards are all ready to be mailed. 
I think we will throw a few "gold coins" in the envelope for good luck!

                                           and the best part, these fun cards can also be 
                       put in a little frame as a reminder to always look on the bright side of life!
