WMSC110 -- Irish Blessings

Okay - I participated once before in the Waltzingmouse Stamps Sketch Challenge:  here.  At the time I didn't own any of their stamps and used a freebie they offered on their website... well... since then I've corrected that problem!!  LOL

Here's a card I created with one of my new stamp sets I bought with WMSC110 in mind:

Picture of the sketch & details here:  WMSC110 
As much as I love adding ribbon to a card, I opted to leave it off on this one.  After trying different textures and bows... it just didn't seem to go in the direction I was heading, you know?

Image is coloured with Copics & the little MFT shamrock die was coated in Glossy Accents after sponging the edges a little with SU Always Artichoke. 

Love this beautiful Irish Country scene and the tons great sentiments that come with this Waltzing Mouse Irish Blessings set.  I left the inside blank, but repeated the little shamrocks to make a border at the bottom.
