Addicted to CAS # 34

It is my turn to host the challenge at  Addicted to CAS and I have chosen the following code word:

With St Patrick's Day just around the corner I thought this might inspire you to create. You don't have to focus on St. Patrick's Day. You can interpret the word how you want as long as you let us into your secret! If you take a look at the cards our DT have made you will see a great variety of ways to interpret 'Luck'. Have a look here.

This is what I came up with:

Yes, I went the St. Patrick's route as my Mum wanted me to make a card for a very special Irish friend. I found this sentiment on the web and printed it out using 'rockwell' font. I stamped the leaves from the eclectic floral STAMPlorations set (who are our sponsors!!). I fussy cut this and added glossy accents and made it into my 4 leaf clover.

Karen is our Guest Designer for this challenge and we are very pleased she is joining us, her creativity continues to amaze me.

STAMPlorations are our sponsors this week. I am on the DT for STAMPlorations and urge you to go and check out the store, the stamps are fabulous.

I hope the next 2 weeks you have all the luck in the world and find some time to join in the fun with us at Addicted to CAS

I will enter this into:
