God's Grace

It's the second day of JustRite week at Stamper's Dream . And we have lots more in store for you the rest of this week.
My card today is using JustRite's new Thinking of You set with the 2-1/4" x 3-1/16" Oval Stamper . I have to confess that it's my very favorite set from this release!

I stamped the border and center on Neenah Natural White cardstock using London Fog Memento ink. I cut and layered them with my oval Nestabilities onto an oval panel cut from Sage Prismatics light cardstock. It was then layered onto a Suede Brown Prismatics panel cut with Spellbinders Labels Four Nestabilities .

I like to keep my sympathy cards a little understated. So in an effort to keep it simple, I used May Arts Ivory 1.5" Crochet Ribbon , cut a narrow sliver of the Suede Brown cardstock and threaded it through the top and bottom of the crochet ribbon. You can see from the picture above what it looks like with just the top threaded with cardstock. It would also be easy to use embroidery floss to get a little different look.

The pearls are from Kaiser Craft and the designer paper is from the My Mind's Eye French Flea Market paper kit.

Be sure to see what The Dream Team has for you today. Here is the schedule for the rest of this week:

Tuesday - Charmaine , Tosha , Laurie , Cammie and me

Wednesday - Tosh , Laurie and me

Thursday - Amy , Denise , Laurie , Cammie and me

Friday - Cammie , Charmaine , Kimberly and me
