Concord Crush Prayers

I LOVE one of our new In-Colors called Concord Crush. It has a deep dark purple hue that I think is Yummy! I used it as the base cardstock for this card. The designer series paper layers are made with Lap of Luxury DSP(designer series paper). I distress the layers and sponged with some Concord Crush ink. The half pearls are a new product we have Jewel Accents, and this is from the Basic Pearls. You get a sheet of different sized self adhesive gems! I had a bit of trouble with my fingernails applying them, then got smart and just used the edge of a cutting blade to pick them off the sheet and place them. The main image is from the Thoughts & Prayers set and is stamped with Concord Crush on Whisper White cardstock. Then I added some Linen Thread to pull it all together. A fast and simple, yet elegant card.
Happy Stamping & Knitting!

WOW! Been a While!

Wow! I haven't posted anything in quite a while! I guess with Facebook my blog seems to feel neglected. I have been busy with summer! The new Stampin' Up! catalog started.....I got some new stuff to play with, but am still trying to reorganize my room! It's a chore, and overwhelming! Been busy knitting some things. Made the sweater for Mom back in May, and liked it so much I had to make one for myself. Then saw an adorable monster pattern and wanted to make them for my nephews. Here is the first one I made. Happy Stamping & Knitting!
