Thoughts & Prayers

I've loved this set from the moment I laid eyes on it, but I waited till now to acquire it. Why? I'm not sure. I guess I figured I would not get enough use out of it. However, lately I've seen some smashing cards with it and am so glad I finally have possession of it. I used Stampin' Royalty's sketch challenge #11 for the layout.

I wanted to use this image and it would not fit inside a smaller circle so I just made the dimensions of the card a little larger. Plenty of room inside for a lengthy message kind of like the one I'd like to send to a dear friend right now. (Jheri Lyn, I know you will be reading this and I don't have the address to where you are right now, so this card is for you!)

I spent the majority of my time roughing up the edges on this card. I just used the edge of my scissors and ran them up and down the sides. Then I sponged them.
