A four leaf clover for luck!

Hi there. it has been a while since I posted but I am back today with a card that I made for a friend who left work recently. I have known her for a long time, so I wanted to make her a card that represented the things she likes.

This image for Sherri Baldy fitted just perfectly as my friend is Irish, she has a special waist coat that she uses for Morris dancing, and of course the clover represents good luck.

I went to town on the colouring for this one, using both my Spectrum Noir pens and the colour blend pencils for the job. Plus i was  so happy that I managed to achieve a face with a defined nose and a soft blush for a change........just wondering if I will ever be able to do that again!

My backing papers are from Nitwits - I thought that the heart pattern on the right looked a bit like a four leaf clover too.

Four once I had this card prepared in good time, and it was lovely to be able to really take my time and enjoy the process for a change!

That's all from me now...time to hit the Easter cards...yes I am back to my good old 'getting behind' ways once again!  Thank good ness I have a week off work!  :-)

Thanks for visiting, and enjoy your weekend.
