Praying for You...

Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes yesterday! I had a very relaxing day with my parent's up in Anacortes, WA! We watched football, went on a long walk, read, watched movies, and just had a great time! I'll be heading home tomorrow (back to Oregon) so today I'm enjoying the luxury of relaxing and enjoying the beautiful Pudget Sound (they live on the water)!!!
I'm offering my first ever blog candy and if you'd like more information about yesterday's post, please click here! Oh and some more fun news??? I made the Top 5 at the Taylored Expressions blog for my baby card last week! WhooHoo! Click here to check it out! That sure made my day!!!
Wanted to share with you this 'Praying for You' card I made for the PPA24 sketch challenge and also for the Colour Q color challenge! I love both of these blogs - they have wonderful challenges and the ladies are just so sweet! I fell in love with the color combination of Basic Gray, Bashful Blue, and Whisper White! Oh my, they just look so elegant together!
Stampin' Essentials Tips:

My flower comes from the Level 3 Hostess Set, Kind & Caring Thoughts! I first stamped the whole flower in Bashful Blue ink, then using my blender pen, I removed the color from the stem. I pooled some color from my Basic Gray ink pad on the lid and used my blender pen to color back the stem using the Basic gray ink! The layered piece of Whisper White behind the flower is textured using the Finial Press Texture folder! This texture folder is soon becoming a favorite of mine! I lined up the brads in a row using my Mat Pack and template! The pretty Bashful Blue paper is from the Patterns Designer Series Paper! It's double-sided, which I love! Stampin' Up! offers this DSP in 14 different colors including all 6 of the new In Colors! Oh how I want every color!
