A Prayer For You

I hope you all had a great weekend! I know I did! But after my vacation and a little time spent playing with friends and family, it's back to reality now, and time to face the inevitable workload that's been piling up. Sad, but true!

For my card today I used the new JustRite Stampers Hugs to You ovals and centers stamp set. The borders and centers are simply perfect for so many occasions!

I stamped both the oval background and the sentiment on Prismatics Birchtone Light cardstock using StazOn Timber Brown Ink. I embellished the filigree oval with Kaisercraft Pewter Pearls , and distressed the edges a bit with Tim Holtz Distsress Ink . The layer behind the oval is Birchtone Dark cardstock cut and embossed with the NEW Spellbinders Labels Four Small Nestabilities. The Birchtone Light layer behind that one was cut and embossed with Spellbinders Labels Four .

I added a Zva Creative Taupe Pearl Flourish to the top left corner. The red flower is from the Prima Symphony Blend Acceso Red flower package.

The designer paper is from Crate Paper's Portrait Collection ! The ribbon and trim I used is May Arts Gold Woven Velvet and Prima Marketing Alencon Lace Trim .

This is a shot of the inside where I used the smallest of the Spellbinders Labels Four Grand Nestabilities. Again, I distressed the edges with some Tim Holtz Distress Inks for definition. The border is a scrap of paper from the Crate Paper Portrait Collection Paper that I had left from the front of my card.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you all have a fabulous week!
