Sending Prayers & Thoughts

I thought this card looks comforting and caring all at the same time.  I figured it could be used for a sympathy card, an after surgery, or even when someone gets some bad news. 
Now this week at Crafty Creations Challenge the theme is "in stitches' although this card is by no means funny I did however use my Jamone sewing machine.
The flower is a Inkadinkado stamp, that I stamped on Cryogen white paper I got from Paper Temptress and colored using my ProMarkers.  The Cryogen white paper works great with alcohol markers and has a sparkle to it that shows through even after you color it.  The sentiment is a Gina K Design stamp, that I stamped on an oval I cut using my Cricut.  I also added some faux or hand stitching around the oval.
After I stamped and colored my flowers I cut them out using my deckled edged Nesties, one from the Cryogen white and the other from a very deep purple/maroon and then stitched them together.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, and don't forget to stop by Crafty Creations and join us this week.
