What Luck!

Green is certainly the flavour of the month out there in 'challenge land'. For this card I was trying to work out how to make a four leaf clover to add that extra 'touch' - cut it freehand, four punched hearts joined together, clip art - when I looked in my punch drawer and I actually have a four leaf clover punch. I couldn't believe my luck! Who has a four leaf clover punch??? I can't remember buying it. I can't remember if I have ever used it before and I can't think why I would have ever wanted one. Not that I am complaining because it was the good luck that I needed to symbolise 'good luck'. Fancy having something that I have never used. ;-)
Now what else is in that drawer .....
