A St. Patty's Day Smile~PKS Sew Super Cute Challenge

Hi Everyone!

This is my submission for PKS Let's Face it Friday challenge. The challenge was to make a card or something that used either real sewing or faux sewing. Since I don't sew, I chose the later and since St. Patty's Day was coming up (also my Birthday), I wanted to do something with a shamrock.  I think it turned out pretty cute, please let me know what you all think.

I did the basic faux stitching on the base of the card and for the Shamrock, I used a needle and poked holes all around it, then used my black gel pen and played connect the dots so it looked more like real stitching. Also used some green ink for shading.
