If only I had an Irish blessing...

Dagnabbit, wouldn't this look fabulous with an Irish Blessing stamp? I don't have one. I wish I did. I really love the one by Our Daily Bread Designs, but I don't have it yet. *sigh*

The challenges I combined here were to use stripes made any way I chose. I scored the panels the chains are in, and they are my stripes. The second challenge was to use green on our cards. Done - I used my new Porcelain 6x6 pad from Basic Grey for the dp panel which Kate has, so go shopping because she has a schwack of new goodies from CHA just in stock at i {heart} papers.

I used Windsor stamp set from SEI for both the main image and the chain panels. This stamp set in on sale so if you like it, it's a nice price! I stamped the main image with versamark and embossed it with clear ep. Then I cut out the image using Labels Two nestabilities. While the paper was still in the die, I sponged it with ink. Yup - easy peasy and totally Irish!

stamps; Windsor (SEI - IHP)
paper; clover leaf swiss dot, coconut swirl (bazzill), kraft (paper accents), porcelain (basic grey - IHP)
ink; shabby shutters, peeled paint (distress ink by ranger), so saffron (SU!), versamark (tsukineko)
accessories; labels two nestabilities (spellbinders - IHP), detail cleap ep, Diamond stickles (ranger - IHP), moss/olive reversible ribbon (may arts), fresh mowed grass dew drops (the robin's nest)
