May You Always Walk In Sunshine

I have to say the Irish have a way with sayings or shall I say blessings. There's just something about the wording that makes me feel warm & fuzzy. And when I get a chance to create card using the Irish blessing it makes me super happy.

I made this card inspired by Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger: I'm Craving Navy and Wplus9 Monday Mood Board #18.

                            

I was staring at this chevron patterned paper while looking at the inspiration pics. And the vase of green on top of the drawers caught my eyes and it makes me think of mixing graphic pattern with floral set. I was thinking what if I mix this patterned with the flowers from Wplus9 Fresh Cut Florals while keeping to the navy theme? And the results is this:


Now & then I made card with results that totally makes me giddy. This is one of them. I think this floral set is my muse. Whenever I use this set, I always end up with something that I am totally happy with. Best flower set out there. (note: if you don't hav this set, run and get it. i {heart} papers have them in stock) And then, when I was looking for which sentiment to use, this Irish blessing from Technique Tuesday caught my attention and I was like this is it! Totally wasn't planning on it, but I am happy that I did. This card makes me smile. 

Here's pic of the flower cluster close-up. I curled a couple of the pieces and adhere them with thick pop-dots, a couple with thin pop-dots and the rest directly to card with regular glue to create depth.


My mom loves flower, so this pretty card will go to my dear mom who is currently enjoying being a grandma. Well, that's it from me and I'll leave you with this Irish blessing:

May you always walk in sunshine.
May you never want for more.
May Irish angles rest their wings right beside your door.
