This card is soooooo out of my comfort zone. My dear cousin has recently moved house. She is not a lady who would go for a cute or fussy card and she is someone who is likely to seek out a local church within a day of moving in so I opted for a very clean and simple look, using a suitable prayer I found on line which I Word processed with enormous difficulty. The problem with using different fonts is that the line spacing goes awry and the only way I know how to fix it is by trial and error; playing with each individual line one by one. It took me hours to get this right but I really like how it looks. My image which just happens to be of bread and wine which I thought was very apt is by Stampin Up. I bought this set a very long time ago and this is the first time I've used it. I think my card would have looked fine with just the prayer and the image on this lovely cream linen card stock, mounted on the burgundy but that was just too clean and simple for my tastes so I added a double ribbon bow and some pearls.
ODB - who are looking for "scripture, quotes or song" as inspiration and I'm hoping they will do the Christian thing and forgive me if my prayer doesn't quite fit the challenge!
SSC- who are looking for "blessings"; in addition to the more secular
Crafty Creations - who want a CAS card; and
Simon Says - who have an "anything goes theme"
It is very important to me that my cards suit the recipient and this one hopefully certainly fits that bill!
Forgive me for not coming by. I am scheduling this post from a restaurant and my lappy is fast running out of steam so I probably won't have time to visit once it's scheduled. I still don't have internet access myself so I shall have to come back to actually enter the challenges.
I would like to say one final farewell to my sisters at Stamptacular. Thank you for being such a lovely team to work with! Especially Priscilla! My next post will be for my GDT post at Mo's Digital Pencil and I'm still sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo excited! Hugs, Lesley
