2S4Y43 - Praying for You

Hi everyone, and happy Friday! Can you believe another week in 2010 has already come and gone? Any fun plans for the weekend? I have a killer headache today, and that's pretty much all I can think about at the moment... What I really want is to be in a dark, quiet room, but that's not happening with my daughter and our dog running around like wild banshees in the house. Quiet is just about the last thing I'm going to get. LOL! So, I will tough it out with Advil and then run off to hide once my hubby gets home later tonight... He can hold the fort down for a few while I try to find some escape from the noise. *wink*

This card was created using the most recent 2 Sketches 4 You layout. I rotated the sketch to the left, and changed the main image size just a bit, but otherwise stayed true. I had so many ideas running around in my head for this one, though! :)

Have a great one, and I'll be back tomorrow with Saturday's EtsyInspired post.


  • Create A2 card base using kraft CS.
  • Cut a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of aqua CS and stamp with background image before distressing edges.
  • Stamp sentiment in burgandy ink, then stamp bird/flower image above the sentiment with Memento Black ink.
  • Stamp the bird/flower image again on a separate piece of cream CS.
  • Use Nestabilities shape die to cut out image, then color in with Copics.
  • Color bird and three of the flower images on the stamped image you set aside, then cut them out. Adhere to die cut shape with pop dots.
  • Adhere aqua CS to card base, add ruffled ribbon and embellish with rhinestones.
  • Cut off edge of die cut and attach it to the card base with pop dots.

Stamps - Sing to the Lord (Our Daily Bread), Background Basics: Retro
Ink - Versamark, Memento Black, Copics, Scarlet Jewel
