Lucky You

 Made a last minute Irish theme card inspired by a few challenges out there!  This could be for St. Patrick's Day or a congrats card or even a new home card maybe??!

I was happy to get out the Wood Grain Colorize dies from Sizzix .  I purchased them a long time ago and they've been sitting on my shelf!  This finished woodgrain strip is 4 layers and really gives a dimensional woodgrain look.
I rubbed Lost Shadow Distress Ink on my craft mat, spritzed with water and then rubbed a panel of water color paper over it.  Then I die cut all 4 pieces out of that so it was easier then cutting 4 different colors of gray.

I did the same thing with the shamrocks - rubbing Lucky Clover Distress Ink on the mat, spritzing with water, rubbing a water color paper panel over it, then die cutting the shamrocks.

Linking my card to:

first time using Wood Grain dies.

clean layered inspired by colors

If 4 leaf clovers can be considered flowers?    I did the center horizontal row, 
if not - I did the top horizontal row!

Ink:  Lost Shadow and Lucky Clover - Ranger Distress
Accessories:  Woodgrain Colorize die, 3D Impresslits Lucky Love Die - Tim Holtz/Sizzix, Pink Copic, Big Chat Stickers - Tim Holtz/Idea-ology, enamel dots - Altenew.
