Shabby Irish Blessing

Hi there everyone!  Thanks for all the well wishes with my daughter going away for the first time!  I'm happy to say she got off to camp without a hitch and I'm sure she hasn't given us a second thought!  I went to the same camp when I was her age and I had a BLAST, so I hope she really enjoys herself! 

Anywho....let's get to why you stopped by!  I made this card for Verve's latest release.  The set is called Blessings and is so beautiful!  When I first laid eyes on this set I knew I would TRY to make something sort of shabby and chose this Irish Blessing to use as the focal point.  I really love how soft these colors look together!  The ribbon looks like a light blue in the pic, but IRL it's a perfect match to the stripe in the dp!

Thank you all for stopping by and for all of the wonderful comments!  It truly makes my day!  Have a good one!
