Happy St. Patrick's Day card!

Hello and Good Morning!!! I made this card for several challenges including Stacey's Curtain Call color challenge to use: Always Artichoke, Certainly Celery, Barely Banana, and Whisper white and the Everything But the Kitchen Sink sketch challenge!
I don't usually celebrate St. Patrick's Day, I'll be at church tomorrow night, but when I saw this sketch, I thought 'oh fun, those circles could be little shamrocks!'. So my card layout turned those three circles into three different shaped shamrocks!
Hope Stamps Eternal had a Cupcake Inspiration challenge that was too cute and also Cupcake Crafts had a 'Going Green' challenge which I participated in as well!! My 'shamrocks' were heart punches punched out of Always Artichoke card stock, then ran through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder! Love those polka dots for some texture and just plain cuteness! The stem of my 'shamrocks' is from the NEW Two-Step bird punch and I cut the leaves off the flower stem and mounted them on my Certainly Celery DSP! It almost looks like it's Always Artichoke DSP - but I promise, it's Certainly Celery!
