Four-leaf clover

I got a little crafting time in last night, so I whipped out this card, which fits two challenges. Some of my Splitcoast friends - all of us are former VSN hostesses - are doing some challenges together, just for fun. And my friend Stacey challenged us to make a card using hearts to make a four-leaf clover. I love this idea and have done it a few times before! Well, when thinking about this card, I remembered the sketch this week at Taylored Expressions, and thought combining the two would be perfect. Taylor is having a big one-year anniversary celebration (with prizes!) on her blog to celebrate a year of TE/Stamp a Sweet Impression. You can see the sketch and other details about the celebration on her blog HERE.
Anyway, working with the TE sketch, I punched out several hearts using scraps of my celery prints DP and my Creative Memories heart punches. Then I used the small hearts to make a clover for the last square, popped up the last square and added a stem, which I hand-cut. I made the oval sentiment using my Creative Memories oval cutting system, since I don't have any oval punches or nesties. Can you believe that? I didn't want to add the bulk of a ribbon, so I just added a strip of prints dp underneath the sentiment.
Stamps: Sincere salutations
Ink: certainly celery
Paper: celery, celery prints dp, neenah classic crest white
Accessories: CM heart punches, CM oval cutter, eyelet, dimensionals
