You are in my thoughts and prayers

You-are-in-my-thoughts-and-

Hello friends!  Today I have a card I made using two of the newly released Our Daily Bread designs sets... Flourished Verses and Faithful Friend.  I started off with a base of Bazzill, and then used Alla Prima for my designer paper.  I used alcohol inks for the dragonflies but my mixative was dried up so they are not as pretty as they could be, although IRL they are more vivid than in the photo.  Anyway... this sketch was from Seems a Little Sketchy .  I used Cheery Lynn Italian Doily for my circle element, and also used Spellbinder's Lattice Rectangles, Classic Circles Lg and Classic Scallped Circles Lg.  Embellishments include Prima roses, bakers twine, MS bough punched greenery, and some fabby lace give by a sweet friend.  You know who you are... and thank you!!!

The dragonflies are so beautiful! Blue & Green is my favorite combo when using them. The pop of yellow/gold is awesome!

Oooh- I love this set and this card really shows it off well, Grace! I love your layers...you must have had a lot of holes to poke out of those die cuts. The flowers and the MS boughs look fabulous! And, of course, the dragonflies are darling! I don't know how you were applying the alcohol inks on them...but they are great...And, as far as the sentiment..."You are on my mind and in my prayers"...always!

He IS Able!
