Irish Elegance...

May your blessings outnumber
The shamrocks that grow,
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go.
~Irish Blessing

Top o' the Mornin' to ya! I was very happy to get some time to sit down and create this weekend! I really wanted to use my new Pink Pailsee paper and I found this Stunning green sheet in the 365 Degrees pad that I knew would work Perfectly for this week's Cupcake Inspiration Challenge. I paired it with some gorgeous 1.25" Silk Ribbon, the colors are Perfect! I was going to add a white rose to the bow, but after adding a strip of an embossed wedding invite and some pearls I wanted a splash of unexpected color. I knew pink wouldn't work, because I wanted to stick with the Irish feel. I simply colored my Sweet Blossom with a Copic Marker and Voila! a true Irish color combo! Erin Go Braugh!!!

Paper: 365 Degrees (Pink Paislee,) Fern (a muse,) Embossed Lace Wedding Invite (Martha Stewart,)
