A thank you card

Hi everyone!

I hope everyone has enjoyed a good week so far. Mine has been busy but, somehow, I lucked out with quiet time at home and decided I should make a card!

I wanted to participate in the latest challenge from the Stampin' Sisters in Christ site. Although I haven't been able to participate here often, I do check out their challenges every week! And this week, they had one that was perfect for me. The challenge was to create a card depicting thankfulness or prayer. I love making these types of cards. Knowing that someone that has been generous with me will receive a handmade card makes me happy. :)

Here's my card:
I started out with a gray card base and used papers from DCWV's Lemon Flower Stack--LOVED the papers! I used the apothecary label from Simon Says Stamp! and a thank you message from that set, too. The sentiment was heat embossed and I love that it matches so well with the colors on the center paper. I added some faux stitching and a few pearls--card was done!

Hope everyone has a great rest of the week. And, if you have time and pray, join me in praying for those that are still struggling to recover from the hurricane in the NY, NJ, and other areas and now the storm that has brought snow, too.

Thanks for stopping by!
