You're in Luck!

I have had this week's SCS sketch challenge printed out and sitting on my desk most of the week You really have to have teeny tiny squares to fit 3 across a regular sized card, so I was having an inner struggle trying to decide what to do and what images to use. I bought this teeny little 4 leaf clover stamp at Archiver's this week, and since it is March... I decided to go all St. Patty's Day on ya. :)

First I cut 1 1/8" squares of Very Vanilla and used my Stamp-a-majig to line them up and stamp the clover in Garden Green. I then doodled around the squares and dotted the stems of the clovers with my Garden Green Stampin' Write marker and sponged the edges with a dauber. Next I matted on Basic Black and glued onto a strip of the Green Day paper from Reminisce, using pop dots to raise the center square above the others.

Next I used my slit punch to do two 5.5" long scalloped edges, punched holes in each scallop with my 1/16" circle punch and matted underneath the striped Green Day paper. I then layered another pattern of Green Day paper on a Basic Black card base and glued down everything I had so far. Next I stamped the You're in Luck Cat's Pajamas stamp in Garden Green on Very Vanilla, punched out with the Word Window punch and sponged around the edges. I then stamped the Cauldron from Cat's Pajamas in Black Stazon, colored in the bubbles with a gold gel pen to make it look like a pot of gold, cut out and glued down with a pop dot.

For the final touches on the card I pulled out my black Glaze pen and dotted around all the squares and the word window punch. I then painted a mixture of Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds on the clover, the gold and on each hole in the scalloped edges. The final addition was a sheer black bow tied across the top of the card.
