Irish Blessing Printable and a coloring page

When I was young, my mom had a little stained glass knick knack with the old Irish blessing on it.
"May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand."

I remember it, and how pretty the sun looked shining through it, but I don't recall exactly what it looked like other than it had a lot of orange and green and the blessing. I decided to turn the idea into greeting cards and coffee cups at Zazzle. I resized the art to make the printable poster above. (The original is 7x5 inches at 300ppi). After spending entirely too many hours drawing the frame part, I decided it would make a good coloring page as well. 
Usual terms apply. Use it for crafting, woodburning, coloring, embroidery. Just please don't offer the image itself for download.  You can find a lot more braided designs on my coloring page.
