It's clubs and I would never invite disaster by trotting it out with a Michaels hand.

If you want to show two-suiters over 2C (and over a strong 1C), there are conventions. One such is CRASH. The calls of double, 2D and 2NT show, respectively, two suits of the same Color, RAnk and SHape.

You can also play this after 2C - P - 2D, but now the calls are Double, 2NT and 3C.
