Shamrock Cards - a repost

St. Patrick's Day is coming very quickly.  Today I thought I would repost a few cards I made last year.  I have been diagnosed with a serious illness and have been told to cut back on my activities.  So you may see me reposting cards from time to time.

Both these cards have shamrocks as their central theme, but the design of each is totally different.

 This first card I saw somewhere and CASED it, but I can't remember where and who.  If someone recognizes the card please let me know.
The shamrock in this card was made by stamping one of the hearts from the I (Heart) Hearts stamp set now retired) using Garden Green ink on Very Vanilla card stock.  The entire surface of the image was then covered with Versa Mark ink, heat and stick powder applied and then dazzling diamonds. Isn't the look spectacular?
The Very Vanilla cardstock was then matted on a piece of Basic Black card stock, the bottom of which had been punched with the dotted scallop border punch.  This was applied to Garden Green Cardstock and a certain celery taffeta ribbon knotted at the top.
The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

In this card, the shamrocks are made with the Embosslits die "Scalloped Heart of Hearts" and Garden Green Card Stock  The 3 hearts were applied to a strip of Very Vanilla card stock using Stampin dimensionals.  This was matted with Basic Black card stock, both ends of which were punched with the Scallop trim border punch.  The designer paper is from one of the designer packs.  It is matted onto Very Vanilla Card stock and again onto Garden Green Card Stock.  Again the sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and is stamped in Garden Green ink.
