Good Luck "Side Step Card" Using Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge

DT Project For Tammy's Scrapin Corner Challenge #53 - Include A Shamrock.

Hi to all my friends, family, followers and crafters.  I hope everyone is having a great time crafting and staying warm and dry.  It is rainy and cold here again in Southern CA as I write this on Friday.  Maybe it will clear up by Monday when this is published. 

It is time for another wonderful week at Tammy's Scrapin Corner - Challenge #53 - Include A Shamrock.  Be sure to check out all the gorgeous creations by the other members of the DT.  They are a very creative bunch!!  Our sponsors this week are Milk Coffee and SK Digis.  Both of these sponsors have some incredible digi stamps; so be sure to check them out.  If you would like to be considered as a guest designer; please add GDT behind your name when entering the challenge. 

I had a challenge finding a shamrock; but finally found a tag on the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge.  There are 3 leaf and 4 leaf shamrocks.  I think they both are considered Good Luck; which was what  I wanted for my card.  I chose Milk Coffee "Charlotte And Butterfly"; which I think is adorable.  A tutorial for this "Side Step Card" by Norma is found here.  I changed mine with the smaller piece on the left side and made it 2 inches on one side and 4 inches on the other side.
