SC585 + Colorful Prayers

It's time for another sketch challenge over at Splitcoaststampers; hope you'll join the fun! And remember, a sketch is just a jumping off point; you don't have to be exact...you can read that to mean I deviated slightly.

I have had these papers forever, they are actually Valentine themed but I wanted a happy (bright) card to send to a friend that has had some tough struggles lately! I let the paper steal the show and cut the lower portion at an angle. I die cut the 'prayers' from chevron paper and black fun foam, offsetting the designer paper just slightly (this in place of the horizontal line on the sketch). I cut some additional flowers from the same paper pack - just a smaller size and adhered with dimensionals. Stamped the sentiment in the lower corner in place of the panel on the right hand side of the sketch. See...it's all there!

I added some white enamel accents to the center of the flowers and sponged all the edges with Old Paper distress ink. I cut an additional piece of designer paper for the inside, sponged the edges and added the sentiment 'thinking of you'.

Thanks for stopping by; hope you have a great week ahead!
