So I used the rainbow and gold.  
Since I am doing my "human" loved ones in one form or another this weekend for my blog hop, I thought I would do one showing my kitty that she is indeed My Gold at the end of the Rainbow.  Just have to convince her to let me get a good face shot so I can add it to my "gold coin" (that gold coin also allowed me to use the first cut on ACCENT ESSENTIALS LOL)

The background paper is from DCWV Crafty stack, the other papers are all from Stampin Up (don't even ask me the colors, I am not careful with my purchases) the glitter gold on the Gold Coin is from DCWV glitter stack.

The tree is from STRETCH YOUR IMAGINATION and cut at 7 inches (had to flip it sideways to make it work in the baby bug)
The little guy (2.5 inches), pot (3 inches) and rain cloud (3 inches) are all from SIMPLY CHARMED
The other clouds (2 inches) and sun (3 inches) are from POOH AND FRIENDS
and finally that giant gold coin in the pot, from ACCENT ESSENTIALS at 3.5 inches, only using the outer ring.  You will notice it is not really held in place yet as I am waiting for a kitty pic to put in there.
The rainbow is the shift feature on HELLO KITTY GREETINGS, I really don't know the size I just made it nice and thin and really long, I have included a screen shot of how I did that, and then just layered the colors.

The shamrocks are from the $ bins at Joann's.
