St. Patty's Bear with Blessing

Coffee of the Day - White Chocolate Coconut

I managed to make a card today, using the fun cupcakes at Cupcake Inspirations Challenges as my inspiration. I had saved this free Irish blessing from Michelle Perkett last week, and knew it would be perfect to go with this cute Irish bear from Sassy Cheryl. all the makings for a perfect St. Patrick's card! :)

Papers are Basic Grey Origins, flowers are Prima, buttons are vintage as is lace. the bear's tie and clover centers are dotted with distress stickles in peeled paint, a lovely shade of green. I painted the edges of the card this time, rather than using craft ink like I usually do. the edges of the blessing were carefully burned.

Sassy Cheryl - flowers everywhere
Party Time Tuesdays - die cuts
QKR Stampede - 3 of something (3 designer papers & 3 buttons)
Celebrate the Occasion - Luck of the Irish
Clear it Out - St. Patrick's Day stash (papers and flowers are OLD! grins!)
Going Grey with Scrap Creations - go green
Twisted Tuesday - springlike and green
Digi Darla's - green
Stamp and Create - fur or feathers
Great Impressions - going green
One Stitch at a Time - green
Basic Grey - anything goes with Basic Grey
Hiding in my Craft Room - green
Digi Haven - green
Broken Box Stock - St. Patrick's Day
Card Makin' Mamas - green
