Thoughts and Prayers

Hi there friend!  Another snowy day here, so I am hiding out inside my warm house!  How bout' you?  The pastor at my church has been going through a lot lately with the loss of his brother from cancer and both of his parents are having serious health issues.  He means the world to us and our church so I made him this card.

Yesterday I picked up one of the newest Hero Arts releases called With Sympathy, since I didn't have a good set.  Here is what I came up with using it.

Using some Rustic Cream cardstock, I adhered The Thrift Shop Patterned paper to the base of the card, stamped my flower image in black

Stamped my sentiment with Versamark and heat embossed it with white powder.  Rounded the top corner and tied on some twine.  Very simple, easy to mail and says what I need it to. 

Yesterday my blog friend Paulina tagged me in her post so I thought I would answer the questions and pass it on!
