An Irish Blessing

I love this blessing and wanted it to be the focal point of my card, with a few little shamrocks scattered around as decoration. I had plenty of green paper off cuts in my scrap drawer so decided on a patchwork style background using 1" squares mounted on black cardstock. 

Since I printed the shamrocks quite small, I kept the colouring simple using just two markers. As you can see from the photo below, I separated the shamrocks by shortening the stems and cutting them apart with a pair of small, sharp scissors.
