Fusion: An Irish Blessing



I will admit that this week's Fusion inspiration stumped me for a bit.  I wanted to go with a neutral color palette from the wreath, but ended up going along with the sketch.  I apologize of the slightly blurry photo.  I love creating cards with the Irish Blessing.  Like my card for the last challenge, this is one of eight of this card that I made for card sets for my mum.  I love working ahead on challenges so making the card sets for her for Christmas for her friends was the perfect opportunity.

I'd love to see how you are inspired.  Here's a quick reminder on the procedures!

PROCEDURES:
1. Play with just the sketch challenge.
2. Play with just the inspiration photo challenge.
3. Or you can create FUSION by combining BOTH challenges into one card.
4. Use the challenge graphic and link back to Fusion in your post.
5. Please read the other considerations on the Our Rules Page before playing along.

Pop on over to the Fusion Blog to check out the fabulous cards by our design team showing you how it works!

We both found this a rough one then and both went for the sketch! I love this blessing and the touch of orange is perfect x

Can't wait to play with this challenge! Beautiful card. My dad gave me a framed piece with an Irish Blessing about artists in it...I have it up in my craft area. I love it.

Fun card! Both the sketch and colours look attractive...(I have that often that I have an idea and look at the card when finished and went some moment in onother direction...) Hugs, Gerrina

That really is a beautiful sentiment and I love the pop of colour from the butterfly.

The choir I accompany sings two versions of this blessing - such powerful words! Perfect layout to let them shine!

The Irish blessing is a favorite of mine and I didn't know there was a stamp of it. You've showed it off marvelously, Lynn, with the dp and colorful butterfly.

This card is just yummy! I love the way the sentiment fits perfectly into the cut circle…the patterned paper with the flowers reminds me of the wreath in the photo! Have a great weekend! ox

Absolutely beautiful!! I love the sentiment as the focal point with just a hint of pattern paper. I have that pattern paper, it's lovely!! And the butterfly is the PERFECT accent and such a great color!!
