Sparkle and shine challenge blog: challenge #1

For the first challenge of this awesome new blog, the inspiration picture is this clover.
I see good luck, green and  circles a herringbone or chevron pattern on the leaves, shadwons due to dimensions, so that's how my card came about.
I die cut a piece of white cardstock with stackable circles in various sizes.
I stamped the sentiment (dutch for good luck) on vellum with Staz-on.
I inked the backpanel with all kinds of green Distress inks. Infact I've done the whole panel even though there aren't  holes everywhere and so some colours were lost, but I know they're there ;-).
With Aleene's fast grab glue I've added a ton of sequins, and honestly I know a lot of the ones I own are from Pretty Pink Posh, but I have others too and I never labeled the containers they all live in, happily together; sorry about that. 
The front panel is raised with mini foam squares.
