Good Luck

I made this Good Luck card for the Cuttlebug Mania 'Green with Envy' challenge. I came across this challenge blog as Di has just joined their design team so it also seems a good idea to hop across to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Card blank: 5" x 5" white silk 
Stamp:  Stamp Addicts 'Whimsy Words 2'
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities Standard Circles Large and Classic Scalloped Circles Large
Embossing: Crafts-Too 'Leaves' folder & Kars tan embossing mat
Ink: Versafine Olympia Green
Other: Wink of Stella
Snippets: Paper, mirri card, four leaf clover and gem 

I embossed a square of green card, layered it onto green mirri card and attached it to the card front.  I die-cut and embossed a circle of green card and attached it to a scalloped circle of green mirri card before attaching it to the centre of the card front.  The four leaf clover was attached to the circle with a gem in the centre.   I stamped the sentiment onto green card, this was die-cut and embossed before being attached to a scalloped circle of green mirri card and attached to the card front with foam tape.   To finish I used a Wink of Stella on the sentiment.

Lovely shades of green and super glittery shamrock, in this super card. I really like the embossing folder you used as well.
