St. Patrick's Day-Shamrock Tree-Copy Craft

I found this great project here: http://lindseyscraftlist.blogspot.com/2010/03/shamrock-tree-with-tutorial.html

This was my inspirational piece.

I didn't have a picture frame and didn't want to go buy anything. I hit John's wood scrap pile and found this piece of poplar.

I painted the edges brown.

I cut a piece of cardstock to fit the board and distressed it.  I mod podged the paper to the wood and let it dry, completely.  I then used a belt sander to blend the edges.
I drew a tree trunk on the back of a piece of wood grained, brown cardstock.  I cut it out. 
I painted the entire cardstock with Mod Podge and added the tree trunk, shamrocks (that I cut using my Silhouette), and letters that spell "LUCK" also cut on my Silhouette.  I added a piece of brown ric rac.

After the mod podge was completely dry, I added a heavy layer of mod podge over the entire project.

I glued a button to the end of the ric rack.

Here's the finished project.  Thank you, Lindsey at Inspiring Creations. You inspired me!
