Good Luck Card

Here  I have made a Good Luck card for a friend starting a new job. 
Unfortunately I haven't had the time to pop round and see her since I completed this card.
Now I can't take the credit for the design of this card as I CASE'd it from a very talented lady who makes a lot of wonderful video tutorials. She goes under the name of Valita's designs and freshfolds  on youtube.  Do a youtube search and you will find loads of her amazing tutorials including  a tutorial on this card.
I have to say I forgot to stamp my sentiment before assembling the card so I had to resort to peel offs for this one. 

I don't have the flower punch she uses to make the Clover,  so I used two heart punches in different sizes. I  inked them  and glued them  one at time on to a tiny piece of green card stock to hold them all in place them added the stalks.

In the video a white pencil is used to add white to the leaves, not being able to find a white pencil I decided  I would brushed on a tiny amount of white craft ink with a  small, stiff  paintbrush to the tips of the leaves.

I'll leave the link here to Valita's Blog you can see her amazing work there too. She's from Australia and has a wicked sense of humour. Not only does this lady show you how to make cards but she also makes the most amazing puppets.
