Thanks for your service!

IBSIC-#41Hello friends!  I'm poppin in quick to share I card I made for a couple challenges this week and I need to hurry if I'm going to get them in on time! LOL!  I used this week's Deconstructed Sketch and Inspired by Stamping inspiration photo to create this card.  I also wanted to play in one of my most favorite challenges, Word Art Wednesday! There's always a freebie verse you can use, or use any faith based sentiment or verse of encouragement, as the Lord lays on your heart!  Karen and her team are such a blessing, why don't you play along!

I used Our Daily Bread designs Jan release, Fellowship Sentiments for this card, stamping with Memento and cutting with a Spellbinders Back to Basics Tag die.  The little envelope is the perfect size to tuck a gift card for that someone who serves tirelessly and you want to thank with a little something special.

I used BasicGrey Fairy Belle dp on a base of Kraft, added some wrinkled seam binding and pearls.  Loved the colors of this ic!

I thought I had beat the crud but alas, last night it seems to have started in again!  I'm so ready for this sicky winter to be OVER!  LOL!  Hope YOU are staying well!

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to stop by tomorrow for our next For the Love Hop!  See you then!
hugs and blessings,

Grace,
How sweet,that little brown envelope just did the trick on a very pretty card. The DSP is soft and the pink pearls seem to go with brown paper.
Thank you for joining us at Word Art Wednesday.
