Here is my take on the challenge:

This is an easel card 

First I made my own BG, with the Technique of Swishing your stamp pad on a non porous pad, two or more colours, spritz a little water and lay your white CS on it, let it dry and do again if so desired. I let that dry and then ran it through a EF,
 After stamping the Clovers and colouring them, I cut them out with the die,
and then I added Crystal Effects, and let that dry over night. then attached with Dimensionals:
Paper: #110 LB CS, Garden Green,
Ink: Memento Black, Copics,
Accessories: White Satin Ribbon,  ODBD Clover Die, Nesties, White Lace, EF, Dimensionals, Liquid Glue

Gracious, I love the technique for your background!! Sounds like fun! Your clover has such a rich green and lavender coloring and looks great die cut and popped up. The added lovely lace and then turning your front into an easel made this card a jaw dropper!! Hugs!
