Irish Blessing

This week the challenge at Sweet Stamps is : 
St Patricks Day

Each week we choose a winner from the challenge to win a $20 Shopping Spree at Sweet Stamps towards your purchase of rubber stamps. You can use any stamp for your card but if you use a Sweet stamp you receive two entries in the challenge.
Remember, you can only enter the challenge one time, those using Sweet Stamps images will get an extra drawing in the challenge. Please limit the amount of challenges to 10 (including ours)  You must link back to us in your blog post.
I used the following supplies:

4" x 5" Acrylic Block 

 DL203 Scalloped oval

  Shades™ Dye Ink Pad

Well you knew I had to make more then one! Love how this turned out.
I started by stamping the background many times using the sentiment.I then die cut the shape and left it in the die and ink embossed.Then I stamped the sentiment in the center and embellished with gems.
I think the olive branches were the perfect touch. Both ribbons are from Really Reasonable Ribbon and the flowers are from my stash.
 just wanted to share this view of the layers.

I am entering the following challenges:
House Of Gilli- use Green
Outlines Rubber Stamping-St Patrick's Day
Truly Madly Challenge-Use Ribbon and Bling
The Corrosive Challenge-Add dimension
The Craft Place Challenge-anything goes
Dies To Die For-Anything goes-use a die
Roque Redhead Challenge- stamped background

So won't you play along with our challenge this week? We always enjoy seeing the new faces and designs and you could be a winner.
