Irish Blessings with Gecko Galz and Graphic Fairy

Hello Friends :0)
Today I have spent a little time playing.  I thought I would create something for both the 
I started out with an image of a sweet little girl from 
Gecko Galz and an adorable little lamb from the Graphic Fairy.
Here is the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches by Marie.
The challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow this week is Monochromatic  greens.  Here is what I came up with.  You may recognize my little gril and lamb from my Lilly Lamb's Vintage buttons and baubbles jar.  I used GIMP to create all the papers, I then used Inkscape to create my cut lines, ...LOL..but my poor laptop's backlight went out, so I am waiting for a new one to hook up to my Black Cat Cougar.  One of those, you can only use the software on a couple computers, so I will wait till I have my new one.  I enjoyed the sketch because it has a lot of room for your own ideas.
I inked all my edges with Ranger's Distress ink in Peeled Paint.  I used Perfect Pearls in Forest green to add some faux stitching lines.
I created my own polka dot paper (lol..took a while) and used some script brush to create the background paper.  The Lamb and Clover are from the Graphic Fairy.  Of has a hidden tag...right??
Of course I threw a tag in there..LOL.  I added a sweet Irish Blessing to the tag.  It too is inked and has faux stitching.  I did this one for the SCH Challenge...and the one below for the Sketch Challenge...although both go by the sketch.
I did pretty much the same, but on this card I used Pink with polka dots behind my sweet image.  The Pink Mulberry Rose, Ivory Drop beaded trim, and porcelain roses as well as the pearl spray all came from Pro 31 Designs.  
I inked the edges on this one the same as the first card, but this time I used Perfect Gold Perfect pearls by Ranger for my Faux Stitching.
I used the same papers for both cards, just this one has the girl and lamb on pink.
Hope you enjoyed the two Irish Blessings Cards.
Please check out both Challenges!
Have a Fabulous day!
