God Understands

Hello Everyone!  For today's card I decided to go with soothing creams and aquas and I thought this sentiment from ODBD's new set called Pray, would be perfect to go with these soft tones.  I also thought this would be a great sentiment for someone who is going through a difficult time when we don't know what to say to make things better - sometimes just a handmade card saying I'm praying for you is enough to lift their spirits.  This is also for this week's Featured Stamper Challenge - I'm basing it on jenndspencer's CAS86 card - changing the colours and theme, slightly modifying the layout.

I started this with a base of aqua bazzill and layered with Very Vanilla punched with the MS Floral Vine border punch (care of my BFF Edna!), and then a layer of this gorgeous MME DP.  Across the bottom I added some ivory crochet lace.  Over the crochet I added the Label 10 die cut (vanilla sponged with Antique Linen ink) and than added the ivory satin ribbon over the top.  The sentiment is from 'Pray' and has been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black, cut out with Large Oval Nestabilities and sponged with Antique Linen and popped up on foam tape.  To finish I added a double ivory satin bow to the ribbon and a couple of Kaisercraft Blush Pearls to the corner.

Stamps - Pray (ODBD)
Paper - Very Vanilla, Aqua Bazzill, MME DP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Label 10 and Large Oval Nestabilities, Martha Stewart Floral Vine Border Punch, Ivory Crochet Lace, Ivory Satin Ribbon, Bow Easy, Kaisercraft Blush Pearls, Foam Tape.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!!  :)
