May your troubles be less...

I love Irish Blessings. This is the only stamp that I have with an Irish Blessing on it and I need to get some more! I have created this card for 5 challenges

Just Us Girls #75  -use the Acrylic Smash Technique
ABC Challenge-P is for Pearls
Case Study #30
Stamp Something-Something Cream and Green
Allsorts #94-Luck O the Irish

Here is the card for inspiration by Julee Tilman.

Here is my card.

I tried a new technique called the Acrylic Smash Technique. You can read about how to do it here. The stamp is My Sentiments Exactly. The paper is Basic Grey. The border punch is Martha Stewart. I added a ribbon, pearls and shamrocks. Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Lovely technique on this - great Irish blessing (I have that same stamp!) love the pearls and shamrocks too!
