Dueling Darling Blessngs!

Hello everyone!
It's the 15th and that means it's time for another Duel!
The Dueling Darlings (group over on SCS) is made up of some of the best ladies online! We are a fun, caring group of gals who love to create.
This month we are hosted by Michelle on the Dazzlers team and Barb on the Divas.
I am a Dazzler so Michelle is "my girl"! 
She sent some of the cutest papers and embellishments in our kit. I love the poem she printed out for us too.
Here's what I created:
See isn't that poem beautiful?!
Thank you so much Michelle! BIG HUGS

Our hostesses wanted us to list any traditions we hold dear at St. Patrick's Day. Although I am of Irish decent, we don't really celebrate the day. Well, if you call making sure I wear something green on that day, then yes....I celebrate it :~)

Be sure and check out all the other Darlings creations. Their blogs are listed in my left sidebar.

Other challenges I am entering:
The new challenge blog, retro sketches 2nd challenge found HERE
and here's the sketch
I turned the sketch and went all the way across my card with it.

Also:
The CCEE Stampers Challenge to use an element of International Flair.

I too love that Irish Blessing. Glad you girls could use it, as it is awesome on your card.

What a great idea (that I will have to try to remember to CASE!) to use multiple DP's. Would work great for scrap pieces. So smart you are!!!

Great job.
