Papercraft Star Challenge 37

Another great challenge at The Papercraft Star.  This week is a photo inspired St. Patrick's Day challenge.  I love seeing all the inspiration over at this blog.  For my card I used a stamp from Verve.  This Irish blessing seemed perfect for St. Patrick's Day.  I'm not Irish but if I were I could totally see myself saying this blessing over a mug of suds!  That is if I even drank. I stamped the sentiment on Choice White and cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 4.  I added some patterned paper matted on Always Artichoke which I edge punched using Martha Stewart's around the page "swirling lace" punches.  The green flower is from Maya Road, and the seam binding is from Memrie Mare.  To break up the white space I embossed the lower corner.  Maybe I'll make an Irish friend to send it to next year.  For now I'll raise my glass to wish all my bloggy friends this lovely Irish blessing.  Hope you all have a beautiful weekend, and thanks for taking a peek!
