In our prayers

Hi everyone!

Today I share a card for a dear church family that has recently lost a loved one. He was a great kind, sweet, and always had a smile on his face. His wife treated him with such love and dignity all the way til this past Friday when he went to sleep in Jesus. So, I wanted it to be a special card...

Here it is.
I started out by inking my purple cardstock with some dusty concord distress ink. I wanted it to be a really rich, royal color purple. Then, I took my Penny Black stamp and stamped it in white pigment ink and heat set it with some white embossing powder. Then I reached for my Perfect Pearls. The picture doesn't really do it justice to how shiny the card is in real life. But I took some gold perfect pearls and mixed it with some water. Then I used it as a watercolor background. It looks so pretty! Then I used my border punch on both the image panel and the one behind it and added some purple rhinestones to add a pop of color again. I added a strand of purple ribbon and then mounted the sentiment on top. The sentiment is from Hero Arts and I stamped it using my versamark pad. Then, I added the gold perfect pearls to the sentiment and spritzed some water on it.

Can't wait til Jesus comes back so I don't have to make these kinds of cards anymore...

Take care everyone...
