So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

Flowers from Ireland

This is for the Outlines Monday Challenge 16 -- Picture This. The challenge was to use Outline Stamps while incorporating a picture into the design. (here is their website)

This is my interpretation of that challenge. I used Outlines Stamps  C-1051 Thinking of You, H-1192 Fanciful butterfly, E-557 Petal Strip border and then on the inside F-1049 Posy Greeting Center and E-680 Flower Power Square Large. The images were colored with Copics and Sakura Glitter Pens. The picture is a picture taken in Ireland last Spring. Their flowers were VERY bright and deep colored and absolutely beautiful in the flower boxes by this particular park and also some of the vendors that were selling them. They almost looked like they put them in a dark dye to get the vivid colors.

I used a frame card and then added some bling, pearls and flowers. The inside I added a sticker verse and left some room for writing.
