Four Leaf Clover

I've been such a lazy blogger lately but the weather has been gorgeous and it seemed a shame not to get a lot of work done in the jungle garden! 

I've been asked to make a couple of good luck cards which I've put off and put off because I had no inspiration whatsoever. After looking through what other people have created on Pinterest and Google images, I liked the idea of making a 4 leaf clover with die-cut hearts. I took the heart idea one step further by using my stash of wooden laser cut embellishments that I recycled from cleaning up after a friend's wedding (they were going to be thrown away - the horror!).

I sanded the hearts to get a light colouring surface and coloured them with a Forest Green pro-marker. The card candi was done in the same colour, as was the matting on the greeting (Candy Round font). The patterned paper matting is from Papermania's green Capsule Collection.

I've entered this card into the 'anything goes' challenges at:
