{Challenged}: Two-in-One Entry

This card was my entry for two challenges.  The "Shamrockin' It!" challenge at 365 Cards on St. Patty's Day and the Cardpatterns Sketch 157 inspired this card... 
I wanted a design with a shamrock that I could use year-round, so I created a shamrock using the small heart on my Heart to Heart punch.  

My color palette is courtesy of the Color Coach (Pink Pirouette, Sahara Sand, Always Artichoke).

My square punch makes for easy pennant-making (see my latest video here).

The pretty paper comes from the Subtles Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack (I used it for the shamrock and the vertical pennant behind the ribbon).
Stampin' Up! Supplies:

Stamps:  Sincere Salutations (W115068)

Paper:  Subtles Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack (117152), Sahara Sand (121043), Always Artichoke (105119), Pink Pirouette (111351), and Whisper White (100730) card stock

Ink:  Always Artichoke Classic (105219) and Stampin' Write Marker (105113) (used in the stem)

Accessories:  Color Coach (120148), Scallop Trim Border (118402), Heart to Heart (119881) and 1-1/4-inch Square (119865) Punches, Pretty in Pink 1/4-inch Grosgrain Ribbon (109032)
