Wee Bit Irish

Each year, for many years, I have made only one St. Patrick's Day card - for my daughter.  Now that she is married, I make one for her husband too.  We have only a minute amount of Irish in our ancestry but it is still my daughter's favorite day.
Why am I making a St. Patty's Day card so early?  I wanted to play the sketch challenge at From the Heart Stamps so I used one of the FTH images and the sketch (and I needed to make something really different from the red and pink and hearts and Valentines )  I have never used this image, so hey, why not now?

The sketch:
The image is cut out with a Die-namic Stax circle.  The 4 leaf clover is cut with the Silhouette.  Green sparkly strips are just pieces from my stash.
Image is colored with Copics.
