Psalms 55:22

This is a very clean and simple card; I wanted the sentiment to be the focal point.  A friend is going through a rough time right now; fortunately, her faith in the Lord is strong.  I hope this card will encourage her and let her know she is in our prayers.

I was looking for a clean sketch and came across the CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge #50.  I also used the CAS Challenge #47 for my color choices.  The card base is Early Espresso card stock.  I stamped the flower from the Regarding Dahlias stamp set on Watercolor paper with StazOn ink.  I then colored it in using a Blender Pen and Rose Red and Pink Pirouette inks.  The paper piercing on the top and bottom was made easy by using the
CAS Challenge #47
Essentials Paper Piercing Pack.  This layer was added to the card front.  The sentiment from the Blessings from Heaven stamp set was heat embossed on Very Vanilla card stock with VersaMark and Early Espresso Embossing Powder.  I cut out a piece of Early Espresso card stock using one of the Apothecary Accents Framelits, cut off a strip from both the straight edges and used it as a mat for the sentiment.  Pink Pirouette Candy Dots were added and Dimensionals were used to attach it to the card.  I appreciate your visit and hope you come back again.  Enjoy your day.
