good luck 56

Hi there and Happy St. Patrick's Day to all who celebrate! It's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week's challenge theme is "Just my luck". Are you down on your luck? Do you feel like today is, quite simply your lucky day? Whatever your mood and however you'd like to interpret this challenge ~ we couldn't resist having a lucky challenge since this challenge falls on St. Patrick's Day! You may just be in luck and win the prize this week!

was inspired to create a good luck tag featuring a couple of 4 leaf clovers.
Once I die cut, embossed and colorized the background using Shabby Shutters and Crushed Olive Distress Inks, I added a touch of gold and Gesso. I don't own a 4 leaf clover stamp, so I created my own 4 leaf clovers using the versatile Plenty of Hearts stamps and coordinating dies. After die cutting the hearts, I stamped the coordinating stamp images using Shabby Shutters and Crushed Olive Distress inks then embellished using Mini Gears and Sprockets.
I completed the tag with a sweet layered die cut butterfly that was made using a combination of the following dies: Simon Says Stamp Leanna Butterfly die and the Simon Says Stamp Paulina Butterfly die:
