Happy St. Patrick's Day

Challenge #7 at Tellen's Place is Anything goes but you also got a free beautiful Tellen Design  image to use if you want, so I decided to use the image and make a St. Patrick's day card for my girlfriend. Don't forget to stop over at Tellen's Place to see all the beautiful image from the DTs and also get your free image. I also ended up using the last free image I got from Paper Popsicles and this week Challenge at The Practical Scrapper is stamp, I will turn this card in for both of them.
I tried water coloring again with the dress, I think I am slowly getting there and the background is from a colorbok sticker packaging, I think I bought the stickers really for the packaging and it worked great for this card.

The Irish Blessing on the card reads (had to look for the one that says heart since she had those in the basket):

May you always have
Walls for the wind,
A roof for the rain,
Tea beside the fire,
Laughter to cheer you,
Those you love near you,
And all your hearts might desire!
