Irish Blessing

>> Tuesday, March 17, 2015

Hi Everyone,

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  Since Tuesday is my day to post here at the blog, I 
saved one of my Irish themed cards that I made a while ago, to share with you on this holiday.

I chose a simple design to put the spotlight on the lovely Irish Blessing.  I stamped it in a dark green and die cut it and added a mat in the same dark green color.  The Infinity Shamrock was stamped over the sentiment in a lighter green and I colored it in using a Copic marker.  

The embossed background was enhanced by rubbing a sponge dipped in green ink over it.  That added just enough color to bring out the shamrocks.  I added a punched border and a piece of white cotton lace to finish the project.

Thanks for visiting and whether you celebrate or not, I wish you a wonderful day!
