I’m looking over a 4 leaf clover

It’s the 2nd week of the St.Patrick’s Day/Good Luck challenge at  Just Some Lines.To play along you need to use a Just Some Lines image to enter and you could win a digi if you’re picked as part of the Top 3.As usual there is a freebie on the challenge site if you wish to use it :)

This darling image is Fairy – 4 leaf clover by Just Some Lines.She’s been coloured with Graph’It Markers and her clothing has been paper pieced.A little sparkle has been added to her pixie boots and  wings with a Gold Graph’It Glitter Shake Pen.I didn’t want to lose the softness of the shading on her wings,so just picked out  the detail already there .Here’s a closer look :

The only way I can think to describe the card I made to go with her is it’s like a variation on a tent card style.But instead of the crease at the top it’s on the left hand side as normal but there are two concertinaed pieces of card top and bottom to keep from the card opening right up.It looks kind of like a slightly open book.I’m probably not doing a great job describing this,so maybe this pic may explain what I mean a little better :

You can also see how I suspended the flowers on some invisible nylon thread.I can’t take credit for the design. I saw a sample card like this at a demo I went to.This is just my take on it.It was quite easy to put together but most of all it fun!
