The finished Good Luck card This is how the card looked without the embelishment

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So last night I decided to make the hubby a ‘Good luck’ card.  He’s got a job interview on Thursday and I really hope he does well.  I searched the internet for good luck images.  What could be more lucky than a four-leaf clover?

So with that in mind, I sketched a simple design to complement the brown card.  I have a real love for paper doily’s at the moment (no one uses them anymore, why?!), and I wanted to incorporate these into the design.

I decided to cut heart-shaped leaves from the doily, and added an extra feature by cutting mini heart shapes at the base of each leaf.  Once glued to the card I stood back to appreciate my work, but felt I’d made it too plain (that’s the design on the right).  So, I went one step further and added sequins and ribbon.

I think it works quite well.  What do you think?  Although a bit feminine, I’m sure the man in my life will appreciate it.  Even more so when the 3 boys have scrawled all over it!
