Lucky Me!

Hi Everyone!  I hope this finds you all doing well! Here in California, there are signs that spring is here. The daffodils in my garden have bloomed and a dove has built a nest under my patio cover on two of the beams. This past Saturday, a baby dove arrived! It is so cute!

Can you believe that it is already March and St. Patrick's Day is next week!   I decided to make a card for   St. Patrick's Day using The Greeting Farm Digi Image - Good Luck Anya. I printed the cute image on Cryogen White Card Stock and colored it with Alcohol Markers. I paper pieced Anya's hat and outfit using Nitwit Collections - Bit O' Blarney Digital Design Papers. I also used the same design papers for the background of the card. I added one of my handmade flowers that I created using some lace that I found at Joann's. I also added some doilies and a Bazzill Timeless Button for the center. The "lucky me" is a stamp from Studio G. The ribbon and lace are from my stash.
I also crocheted some 4 leaf clovers using a tutorial I found here. I dyed them using green food coloring.        I added a rhinestone that I found at Michael's to each of the centers.
 Thank you for stopping by my blog! Lucky me to have such wonderful followers like you!

I hope you all have a wonderful St. Patrick's Day! I'm going to try to make a Grasshopper Pie for my hubby on St. Patrick's Day! Chocolate and mint! Yummy!

I'm entering my card in the following challenge:
