Irish Blessing



Betty's Color Challenge on SCS was to use the 2 retiring colors of Barely Banana & Ballet Blue along with Old Olive. Dessert was optional - using a red embellishment; I opted to skip dessert. I used Mercy Kerin's Tuesday Sketch Challenge for the layout. I couldn't believe it when I came home from work and my Verve stamps were already here after being mailed out Saturday morning after the big release Friday PM! Wow, that Pony Express has kicked up its heels! The hibiscus flowers were colored with Copics, cut out & popped with dimensionals. I just love the new images and sentiments that Julee came out with this month...check it out at the Verve store!

STAMPS: Blessings (Verve), Happy Days (Verve)
PAPER: Ballet Blue, Barely Banana, Sweet Pea DP (SU)
INK: Black, Ballet Blue, Barely Banana
ACCESSORIES: Old Olive satin ribbon (SU), Copic sketch markers (Y11, YG03, YG95, B21, B23)
