Sending Thoughts and Prayers

Hello friends.  Today I am sharing a card I made for a dear friend who is in the hospital.  I used the March Viva la Verve sketch when making my card.

The pattern papers are some goodies that Julie sent in my Verve order so I had to put them to good use.  I matted them with black and used the retired SU Scallop Border punch.  The sentiment is from Verve Inspire Hope (sorry, it has been dicontinued) and the butterfly is from Verve Butterfly Grace.  I stamped the butterfly in black and used my aqua brush and SU Melon Mambo ink to color it and match it to the colors and the butterflies in the pattern paper.  I die cut the sentiment and black mat with Spellbinders dies and mounted it with foam tape.  I wrapped the b/w twine before mounting the vertical panel.  The butterfly is mounted with a small piece of foam tape in the center.

My friend loves my cards and saves them all.  I know she will appreciate this one also.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Happy Stamping,
