Pray and Let Go

Hello Everyone!!  Today's I'm taking a look back at the ODBD December Release!  This month they brought out a beautiful prayer stamp set called Handle with Prayer and a matching die to cut the hands out called Praying Hands!  I thought this set was perfectly timed for me, as I've we've had a lot of stressful/sad/painful events happen in our family over the last few months and sometimes you need to be reminded that God is there to take that burden and help you through.

It is Summertime here in Australia and the weather is just beautiful right now!  We are in T-shirts, shorts and thinking of the beach! With these thoughts in my head, I've reached for a colour palette of blues and browns and this gorgeous By The Shore Collection paper by ODBD - I just *love* this paper!

I've used a blue card base and topped with brown and white cut with Double Stitched Rectangles Die.  Next I've added some beautiful By The Shore Collection paper and stamped the sentiment from Handle with Prayer in the top corner.  I've taken the Double Stitched Circle Dies and cut a circle of white and blue, layered then and then trimmed one side and attached as shown.  I've then stamped the hands from Handle with Prayer in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (E000, E01, E11, E13, RV10, B00, B12, B14).  I've cut this out with the Praying Hands Die and popped it up on foam tape for a little dimension and attached to the circle diecuts.  To finish I've added a few white sparkly sequins.

Kathy, this is a beautiful card, and I love the very true! I can't agree more with you about how we need to trust the Lord in the hard, stressful, sad, and painful times in our lives. Praying that you continue to heal and feel better so you can enjoy the lovely warm weather! Hugs, sweet friend!
