Another Irish Blessing!

St. Pat’s Fact: His mission in Ireland lasted for thirty years. After that time, Patrick retired to County Down. Patrick is thought to have died sometime around 461AD, on March 17th.
Edited to add:  a sweet blog visitor, Nancy, let me know that this card fulfills the Papertrey  Ink Paper Dolls challenge requirement this week :)  Thanks, Nancy!!  The challenge is to have something with P, T, I in your project…Nancy noticed  I have Patterned Paper, Triangles, and Ink!!  Then my fabulous blog buddy, Aimes, let me know that this card would also work for her Passion for Papertrey paper piecing challenge AND the Moxie Fab World Paper Piecing Challenge.

Hi everyone!!  Today’s card is one I’ve been dying to make for awhile.  I got the PTI banner dies AGES ago and just never have had the chance to use them.  I’ve been looking around and seeing what others have done with them and finally sat down on the weekend to play a bit.  After reading this Irish blessing, I thought I would make it a rainbow banner.  It was fun to pick out colours from my dp stash :)  Pretty CAS, but I think very effective.  No challenge today…I’m sure I could find one to fit this card…do you know one?  Let me know and I’ll put it in! LOL  Have a great day and make sure you come back tomorrow!! It’s my sketch debut over on the Verve Forum!!!  Yikes!!  Don’ be looking for a CAS card tomorrow…think loud, bold and clashing!! LOL  See you then :)

what’s in it?

stamps: waltzing mouse Irish Blessings, pti banner builders

ink: versafine onyx, su kiwi kiss

paper: pti cream, plum pudding, summer sunrise, su real red, kiwi kiss, pumpkin pie, ballet blue, pti, cosmo cricket, october afternoon, su and basicgrey dps, glitter cardstock

Aw, this is so sweet! I really like the bold colors and the sentiment. Very cool!

Love the rainbow banner and sparkly clouds. Perfect for the sentiment.

Are you going to be joining the Diva Dark side too....LOL! I'm two sketches behind already so we'll see if I just throw in the towel and skip this month or not.

Day one of Oz is over and the kids were amazing!! I've been singing Ease on Down the Road for days now LOL! Have a great day.

Total cuteness girl!! Love those banners. Perfect assortment of pattern papers for each color! I haven't tackled banners yet, but with the cutie SB dies coming out it's only a matter of time.

Lynn said... must pull out this set more often! I love the CAS style of this card...and the glittery clouds = heaven!

I visit often, but neglect to leave comments each time. Although a bit simpler than many of your cards, this one still showcases your creative approach. The rainbow banner is fabulous with the blessing.
This card actually fits a challenge the Paper Dolls are hosting ( The project has to have items beginning with a P, T and I. You make it with patterned paper, triangles and ink. A $25 PTI GC is up for grabs. Looking forward to seeing your sketch.

Love this card! It's so fresh and springy. Your banner is adorable! I haven't had a chance to use this set yet either. I think it's about time I did. Thanks for the inspiration! So glad you linked to the Paper Dolls Challenge. Good luck!

Aimes said...

From the super sweet banner to the sparkly clouds it's all just seriously fabulous!
Y'know there's a couple of challenges you could enter this into y'know. Our Passion for Papertrey challenge is Paper Piecing and if it's still open Moxie Fab World has a paper piecing challenge too!
