I've been wanting to encorporate fabric into my I grabbed some of this pretty artichoke fabric at the local fabric store and die cut four heart shapes to create a shamrock. Does it look like a shamrock to you? I originally had three larger buttons as the shamrock center, but started playing and ended up with one larger button surrounded by the mini ones.

I loved your card and it inspired me to get up from my chair and make a card. I was needing to make a sample of the easel card and I love the colors. My lighting didn't give my picture justice.
