Fusion Card Challenge - Lucky You!

Hi and thanks for stopping by! I hope you're having a great day! Wow! Can you believe it's March already? And not one, but TWO holidays this month! This week I think you're going to see lots of St. Patrick's Day! I'm not Irish, but that wont stop me from making corned beef, or drinking a few green beers. Well if the beer isn't green I promise the bottle will be!

Here's the latest challenge photo for Fusion Card Challenge! Remember if you don't want to be Irish that is ok.. follow the sketch. If you're feeling tricky try to combine the two.
I decided to replace all those rows of clover with a repeated quilt pattern. Thank you MISTI for making this possible! LOL I stamped three rows of the quilt pattern and filled them in with shades of green. Yes... three shades of green ink going on here. One for the stitched pattern, and two for inside the loops.
I thought that little banner that says "lucky" in the inspiratoin photo was so cute that I had to put a banner of my own across the top of the card. The Lucky word die really stands out in black. If you look close I made the clover inside the word die green. Inside the loops of the clover are gold. They look like little gold coins.

A few enamel dots and some Twinery twine - yes in more shades of green and color me happy!
I can't wait to see what you make! You can see more beautiful inspiration from the design team and get all the details here at Fusion Card Challenge!

Marvelous take on the inspiration photo! I'm especially smitten with your quilt stamp/colours. I don't have anything that's St. Patrick's Day specific, but you've given me ideas for 'adapting' things I do have...
