Skipping Stones Sketch Challenge ~ An Irish Blessing


Hi!   Time for another Sketch Challenge at Skipping Stones Design.   Our Sketch was once again designed by Belinda of Bleu Bella Paperie.  I really love this Sketch and will definitely be saving it to use again.   


For my card, I used the Rustic Tiles stamp set from SSD.  


When I saw the first tile, it really reminded me of a Celtic Knot design – so, I decided to use it for a St. Patty’s Day card.



I hope you aren’t tired of seeing my cardz using the new Basic Grey origins paper ~ I really love it!!     The tile was colored with Copics and then edged with Distress Ink in Vintage Photo.   I also used the Spellbinders Shapeabilities Pendants Lattice die to mount the tile on and added a brad from Vintage brads by Creative Charms.   The ribbon is from an awesome package of goodies I received from my dear friend America.   The sentiment is computer generated.



The inside of the card is one of my favorite Irish Blessings, also computer generated …



Here’s a closeup, if you would like to read it:
