Sparkle & Shine Challenge #1

*Note: this is my second post for today.
Please scroll down to see the card I made for Reverse Confetti's SFYTT.

There's a brand new challenge in blogland called Sparkle and Shine Challenge,
which is being sponsored by Pretty Pink Posh.

The founders of the Sparkle and Shine Challenge asked the Pretty Pink Posh DT
to play along with their first challenge.
Here it is:

Isn't it fun?
It totally made me think of Shamrocks and St. Patrick's Day.
So I searched through my PPP dies to find something I could use
to make a "four-leaf clover."
Here's my card:

Can you guess which dies I used to make my window?
It's the oval die from the Stitched Tags Dies!
And for the stem, I used the end of the scalloped border die from Stitched Borders 2 Dies.
I stamped the sentiment on my white card front using PTI's Wonderful Words Additions
and diecut the "lucky" using the coordinating dies.
I filled my shaker with Pretty Pink Posh's Woodland Mix Sequins.

So be sure to check out Sparkle and Shine Challenge
to see what everyone else made for the first challenge,
and to play along as well!
