Hearts create a shamrock for St. Patrick's Day card

St. Patrick's Day is coming up next month and I thought I would get a few ready! I made a few of these last year which feature layered hearts which create a shamrock.  I punched the large hearts (SU) and sponged their edges.  I die cut the smaller hearts (CB), layered them and stitched them together.  I created a layered background using several strips of green decorative paper and adhered it to a green card front.  I positioned the hearts to create the shamrock and then hand cut a stem which I also sponged.  After I was happy with the placement I adhered them all to the front of my card and added a little clear rhinestone in the center.  I trimmed the laser printed greeting from my stash, sponged its edges and adhered it to the front of my card just below the focal element.  I added two little rhinestones to the greeting as well.  Love these heart shamrocks!!
