Thoughts and Prayers (two)

20 Mar

I bought this stamp recently and I seem to be drawn to it. I have a lot of friends who are either facing challenges themselves or they know someone in their family who is. So I need some cards with this sentiment.

Today’s card was inspired by Color Throwdown. Featuring this blend of colors:

{By the way, they look a lot like my header colors…} This is what came from the inspiration.

I kept the card simple with the stamped image as the focal point but I finally created the ever-popular spiral flowers using the Peony die template from Spellbinders. I has hears they were easy and I do agree but it takes a little bit of finessing to get it to look just how you want.

After cutting the spiral, I glued a little cone from the middle and then put in a brad. I used the brad’s “teeth” to spin the flower into shape. To keep the flower in place, I used two Glue Dots on the back.
