 Time to get the St. Patrick's Day cards made!

I created a pinwheel quilt on the center of my card.  It was a Technique Lovers challenge over at Split Coast Stampers and they linked to this instruction YouTube video.  (I really should have used a plain paper and a patterned paper rather than two patterns so the pinwheel design showed up better) 

 I cut two squares of metallic gold 2 5/8" x 2 5/8" and eight 1" squares (4 of one pattern and 4 of another pattern).

 I adhered the two gold pieces together, one on an angle, and then added the squares over each other in the pattern shown on the video.

 I used the 3D Impresslets Embossing Folder Lucky Love by Tim Holtz/Sizzix for the 4 leaf clover in the center.

Both the quilt panel and shamrock are up on foam dots.

I stamped the LUCKY in the corner.   My card is 4 1/2" square.

Julia... Love your pinwheel! Thank you so much for sharing the tutorial. You card is wonderfully simple. The center shamrock is so real and looks almost like jewelry. Thanks so much for joining and sharing at Just Us Girls this week.

Your gold shamrock is so pretty on the green pinwheel. TFS

Gorgeous. I actually love the subtle changes with the pin wheel using the two types of green patterned paper, it plays even more trick on your eyes :) you nailed it with the gold shamrock ♥

The pinwheel design looks so striking and a real WOW to the gold 3D clover. What a fabulous 'Lucky' card Julia x.

Taking a closer look, I could definitely see the pinwheel quilt design of the two designer papers, which makes a really special background for your gold shamrock Julia!
So glad you shared us at the Tic Tac Toe Challenge!
