Praying for You... Stamping Sisters in Christ

Happy Sunday everyone!

I made this card for today's Featured Stamper Challenge on SCS and for the Stamping Sisters in Christ Challenge... to make a Thinking of You or Praying for You card. I chose a gorgeous all white card by Nancy to case. You can't improve on perfection, and hers was there... so making three changes was difficult, but here is what I did:

I stamped my sentiment in Archival Sepia Ink onto Very Vanilla CS. The sentiment is from the soon to be released Our Daily Bread Designs set "Praying for You". I then stamped the dragonfly from a coordinating set, With Heartfelt Sympathy... and I stamped off once, then lightly stamped it onto my main panel. Then I cut all my pieces for the sketch and ran then through the CB with my new CB embossing/ die combo "Ornamental Iron". Love it!!! Then I sponged with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Tea Dyed, to give an antiqued look. I sprayed everything with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Bronze. Love Glimmer Mist!!! I had more trouble getting a good photo of this... the sun is only peeking out now and then today and I tried to catch the moment but I still don't think you can really see the sparkle.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you are having a blessed Sunday!
