An Irish Blessing


Hello my friends!! It's been awhile since I've posted, and I'm sorry. I've been busy stamping though and will have tons to share with you soon.

I made today's card for this months first Viva la Verve sketch designed by Amber, and for an uber talented stamping friend who has a St. Patrick's Day birthday. I thought this Irish Blessing from Verve's Blessings set would be perfect!! She also adores Shamrocks, and I'm sure she has quite a collection, so I included another sentiment on the inside.


Is this sentiment perfect or what?! Love it!! I found a photo of the shamrock online, printed it out, and cut it out of felt. I know it's not the traditional bright green, but I'm more of a "mellow" stamper. *grin*

Now, I should also let you know that this Blessings set that I used is the Stamp of the Month over at Verve, and you can get it for 30% off!!

That's it for today ya'll!! Have a super week!! And Happy Stamping!!
Tosh

I'm not sure what I love most about this card. The colors are great, shamrock is so cute, and the sentiment panel looks so perfectly done. The shading, the actual sentiment..it's just so awesome. What a beautiful card to get in the mail!

The green shades you have used are so soothing and make for a less "in-your-face" green Shamrock card. It's stunning.
