A card and a Prayer

I found a new-to-me sketch challenge last night called the Deconstructed Sketch. I looked at some of the past sketches on Jen's, and I am already addicted.

I made this card up quick, but I think it looks like I spent a bunch of time on it (its the sketch I am telling you). I used my new SU! Edgelits borders on the main long strip and on the bottom of the front panel (I can tell I will be using them a lot). I pulled out my SU! set called Natural Beauty to do the front panel behind the flower - what a super set that has been for me (I think SU! should bring it back). Fun papers from Prima, some Cool Caribbean ink all over the whole thing, a flower and some sprigs, and a few pearls - and it was done!

It is going to my MIL who needs everyone's prayers. She had kidney surgery yesterday and the news was not good. She goes to the doctor in a week and they are going to decide the next plan of action. If you have some time this week or some room on your prayer list - please say some prayers for her. She is such a sweetie, and it breaks my heart that she may have to seriously suffer.

It's Friday! Hope you all have a wonderful day!



  1. This card is just gorgeous. Loaded with beauty. I'm sorry to hear of your MIL's illness and I will keep her in my thoughts and prayers, but if anything can make her feel a bit better it will be this card. Your color scheme is so pretty and I love how you used that stamp. I think I will have to pull that one out of my closet also. You flower has such an elegant look to it. Wonderful job.

  2. This is one gorgeous card, and it does look like it took forever to make! I love all the distressing and borders, and hopefully this will cheer up your MIL who is going through a rough time. I'm so sorry for her and will keep you both in my thoughts and prayers.

  3. That flower is gorgeous! Love the edger down the side too. Great card. So sorry to hear about your MIL...thoughts and prayers for her!

  4. Love the flowers and cuts on this beautiful card. You have used some nice neutral colors that really highlight the soft blue. This is just gorgeous! I am sorry to hear about your MIL-I will be saying prayers for her.
