DRS Challenge #212 Lucky Charms

Good morning!
Time for a new challenge.  This week at DRS Designs you need to portray your "lucky" charm
 or use a charm in some way.
I made some charms with Shrinky Dink (Shrink Plastic).
Under my bow I have strung my shrink plastic charms.  The shamrocks are from a die and the Celtic cross-Infinity Shamrock 281E, is stamped and cut out.  These were all about 4 times the size when they started out.  I punched 1/8" holes at the top of the shamrocks (hoping that would be large enough after shrinking), to thread some floss through for stringing.  That worked just fine, I don't think I would go any smaller.  You can't wait until after shrinking because the plastic gets thicker and much harder.
For the card itself I stamped the new release Tall Shamrocks 681G and Shamrocks and Shenanigans 692F onto white cardstock and colored with Copics- YG03, & YG23. and made a frame with the My Favorite Things rectangle stitched frame.  That is about it except for the sheer ribbon bow.

Thanks for visiting today and happy crafting!
