MoJo Monday Shamrocks

Today I decided to create a card for the MoJo Monday Sketch Challenge. The sketch is below.  You can make a round or square card and I decided on a square St Patrick's Day Card.  I really don't have any stamps for this occasion so I decided to improvise.

A Shamrock is a low growing, clover-like plant, with three-lobed leaves, that are the national emblem of Ireland (looked that up).  And as we all know when you find one with 4 lobes you are in luck!  I remember as a kid our entire front lawn was covered in clover.  Back then I didn't know that wasn't a good thing. :) I remember sitting sometimes for hours on a summer day looking for a four leaf clover and being ecstatic when I found one. Taking it inside so my mother could press it between wax paper so I would always have luck. <3

Today's card features that one lone lucky shamrock among all the rest.  I used the smallest heart on the Heart to Heart Punch to make the lobes and then glued them onto the circle in the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack.  The stems were made using the small oval punch.

The paper is Lucky Limeade card stock and the Twitterpated Designer Series Paper.  The sentiment is from Friendly Phrases and inside I stamped "Got Green?" from the Got Treats Stamp Set.

Take a look at the sketch, visit the Mojo Monday site for some additional inspiration, and join the challenge!

Have a wonderful evening!
