PWC267 - Sentiment as Focal Point

This week Paper Pretties is challenging you to "Use a Sentiment as Your Focal Point". These cards are a favorite of mine because you can make them quickly and you can use lots of your pretty embellishments to fancy them up.  

My card uses one of the Irish Blessings to make a "thinking of you" card.  This sentiment would also be good for a sympathy card, it just needs to be toned down a little, maybe a simple black and white paper and skip the pearls and lace.

Here's the deets:
stamp - Paper Pretties "Irish Blessings"
Ink - Memento "Cottage Ivy"
paper - Recollections "Itsy, Bitsy Ditsy - Cherry Pie" patterned paper; My Favorite Things "Pink Lemonade" and "Smooth White" card stock
miscellaneous - ribbon; lace; ribbon flower; ZVA pearl flourish; pearls, Spellbinder's "Oval" and "Labels 18" dies; machine stitching

Here's the challenges:
