Blessings to You...

Shamrocks at your doorway For luck and laughter too, And a host of friends that never ends Each day your whole life through!-Irish BlessingThis week's Cupcake Inspiration is a soft, pastel Shamrock and Rose Tower of treats...So pretty!!! We are sponsored this week by Doodle Pantry, I grabbed 2 of the sentiments from their Clover Patch Ants set and paired them with the Shamrock Digi from Waltzing Mouse. I used the "Blessings to You" sentiment to make a background paper for the front of the card.

I used another one of the sentiments for the inside, as well as a lighter version of the image...
