Praying for You

Hello, everyone! This card is another one that I made to include in the boxed set that I am donating to my church's fall festival next month. It will be one of the door prizes given out at the event.

I wanted to make a get well card that was a bit more appropriate for a serious illness. I came across this sentiment, computer generated, and thought it would be a good one to use on this card.                                                 

Starting with white card stock for my base, I added a layer of red. I embossed a white layer with a Couture Creations embossing folder, added red dots with a Memento marker and adhered it to the red layer.

After printing out my sentiment, I die cut it with Spellbinders Adorning Squares and matted it with another panel in red cut from the same die set. This was then popped onto the card with dimensionals.

The leaf branches were created with Marianne Creatables Vintage Swirls and adhered to the focal point panel.

This card will complete the boxed set. I hope whoever wins this will enjoy sending or giving them and I hope the recipients enjoy receiving them.

This card was entered into the following challenge(s):
TTCRD - Anything Goes - Jul 29-Aug 5
Word Art Wednesday - Challenge #91 - Anything Goes
The Outlawz  -  GCC0729 - Anything Goes
