Hi Stampers,

I have been waiting to use this set for some time and today was the day. I love this set so much "Thoughts and Prayers" that I have lovingly looked at it each day just waiting for the right time to use it.



The sentiments that come with it are so awesome.
I use a card base of Chocolate Chip, I cut out a top note using Pink Pirouette. The branch was colored with Stampin Up Markers. The colors I used were Regal Rose and Always Artichoke. I also sponged the edges of the top note with Regal Rose.

When I stamped the Happy Mothers day I first inked it in Regal Rose then I tapped it into Chocolate Chip you may not be able to see it but it kinda has a pink/brown modeled look to it. I also had pressed a little bit to hard and got a line over the "ers" so I had to add another flower to cover it. It doesn't look to bad. I punched to small very small butterflies sponged the edges with Regal Rose and added two rhinestones to each butterfly. I had this bow made from some previous adventure and thought it looked ok too.

On the inside I layered a piece of white card stock 4 x 5 1/4 and inked up the stamp again stamped once on scrap paper then onto the card stock for a soft look. Sorry about the poor picture quality I have done something to my camera and I just can't seen to get good pictures any more. Thanks for looking and thank you for all the comments I love to read them.
