SC220... Thoughts & Prayers

Happy Sunday everyone! Today's card is using the ever so popular Thoughts & Prayers set... I'm sure by now you know it's my FAVORITE!! This card was given to Lisa at The Crafts Meow as a RAK (Random Act of Kindness). I waited till she received the card to show you, so it would be a surprise for her! Lisa is such a super sweet blogging friend I've known since starting my blog last October!!

So I decide to use the Sketch Challenge SC220 over at SplitCoast. If you remember this card I posted 2 weeks ago both have the same DP and lay out! The card is pretty cut and dry. I want to mention I chalked the leaves to give more depth and I used my mini flower punch that was only a $1 at Michael's!! (great investment!) Then used my SU! white gel pen for the flower centers.

Thanks for poppin' in to visit and I hope you enjoy!! Think SPRING EVERYONE... ahhh!

Hi Kyle... :) The “Best Yet” stamp set is from the SU! fall/winter catty as a hostess set... which is no longer available. So I would suggest trying E-bay. I hope this helps you!! Have a super day and thanks for the lovely comment!! Smiles... Michelle :)
