CC209 & TECC57 - Praying For You




This is my submission for yesterday's SplitCoast Color Challenge CC208 and for Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge TECC57. These are not my normal colors so this card was a little hard for me.

I started out with an Always Artichoke card base. I used a piece of the dotted rose paper from the designer pack Raspberry Tart for the background paper. I inked the main image from the SU set Thoughts and Prayers with SU Markers in Basic Black, Rose Red, So Saffron, and Always Artichoke and stamped it on a white panel cut with a Rectangle Nestabilitie. I stamped the image again with Rose Red ink and cut out and popped a few of the flowers for dimension. The sentiment was stamped with Whisper White Craft ink on Basic Black Paper, embossed with White Embossing Powder, and cut out with the Large Oval Punch. The background piece was pierced with SU's Mat pack and a Paper Piercer. Now, on to the dimensional flower bling. I have looked everywhere, for several months, for some Heidi Swapp Ghost Images after seeing them several months ago on Jody Morrow's blog. She has done some wonderful projects with those images. I finally found them!!! I added one behind a Silk Flower and a Designer Brad that I got from a local scrapbooking store.

Hope you have a wonderful week. Thanks for dropping in.
