Card: Thoughts and Prayers

Hello and Welcome! 

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Saturday!  

I am sharing a card today that was inspired by this week's sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  In addition to the sketch inspiration, I wanted to focus on a few sample sympathy, thank you and just because cards over the next few weeks.  I am working to start my own Card Ministry with my church and it is something that I have been thinking about for quite sometime.  I have been looking for ways to get more involved with my congregation/community and I thought why not share my love of cards.  I think I have a nice little plan for my next steps and I hope you'll come along this journey with me.  

So here is today's card...

The Mint Macaron cardstock helped to create a peaceful background to the beautiful DSP.  A touch of vellum helped to frame the sentiment as well as bring out the sprig punches.  The more I work with vellum the more I love it.  I think it brings that soft touch and can really complete a card.  More vellum!!!

The card actually opens down the middle and it is my first time created a card like this.  I wanted to do something a little more unique today and I love the way it turned out.
