Make wishes come true: an Irish blessing/wish

"May your blessings outnumber
the Shamrocks that grow.
And may trouble avoid you
wherever you go."

If you would like to participate in the current House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge Blog challenge #113 there is still one more week to create a card using the theme May wishes come true.   I decided for my second theme challenge card to use an Irish blessing and my sentiment is my wish for this card's recipient.

I cut out extra clover and spread them around the card hoping to achieve a three dimensional look to the mouse's "Shamrocks."

Card Recipe:

Stamps:  House Mouse stamp by Stampabilities titled "O Lucky Day"
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, image colored with a combination of Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils.
Designer Paper:  K & Company Tim Coffey Mat Pad and Stampin' Up! Cardstock
Embellishments:  Lavender pears, Martha Stewart white pearl brad, Martha Stewart trellis border punch, machine stitching, sheer lavender ribbon, pop dots and foam tape, and Sakura sparkle gelly roll pen.

Be sure to check out all of the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge blog design team's lovely Make a Wish themed cards as well as add yours to the link.  We'd love to see it.

And on a final note about House Mouse stamps.  Did you know that you can also post your cards at the official House Mouse designs blog too?  Yes you can and they'd love to see your creations and post them in their "Hand Made Designs by Me" second of their website.  And of course you can shop there too for House Mouse stamps.  Just look for the HMD by me photo on my sidebar and click it or go directly to the site HERE.

Until next time,
Mousie cheers!
