I Brake For....May Your Troubles

Hello stamping friend - Nancy here today.  How about a little Irish Blessing?

The card uses a stamp called May Your Troubles, found here

  It's a lovely Irish blessing that works well for different occasions.  A wedding shower or wedding celebration card, new home or baby - all fit with this sentiment. You can even use this for a nice birthday card for your Irish friends!

I love the Celtic knot border around the text and was happy when the detail came through even after embossing it in gold.

I used a cryogen white cardstock, which as a very pretty shimmer to it, but is hard to capture in a photo. I really wish you could see the soft, subtle shimmer on the paper.

For the background design I took a Celtic knot border from a Silhouette cut file, copied it several times and welded it together to make one overall piece.  Using a white on white palette I think the design adds a touch of elegance without overpowering the sentiment.   

Hop on over to the IBFS store to find thousands of stamps - you are bound to find something to your liking!  Check out their entire line of St. Patrick's Day images.
