Framed Irish Blessings – making a clover using your die-cuts

I have never really been a big St Patrick’s Day fan – let’s be honest green is not really my colour and well that whole pot of gold and leprechaun thing… Anyways that been said I am a fan of their beautiful Irish blessings. So in celebration I made this framed piece of art using a few of my die-cuts and a printed quote from my Silhouette.
