Irish Blessing

   My daughter is about to start uni and is a little apprehensive so I have made this card to send her on her way. The images are all taken from various stamp sets from Elusive Images which is now known as Chocolate Baroque as listed below.
   The poppy seed heads is from the flora and fauna set
   The cut out butterfly from the just butterflies set
   The Irish saying from the patchwork butterfly set
All were coloured using Promarkers and the finished sheet was matted onto core'dinations cardstock before attaching it to a scalloped card.

   Chocolate Baroque - colour chart
