Get Well Prayers

After quite a hiatus, I'm back with a new card! That's the good news.  The bad news is that today's card is for a friend of mine who was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer.  I wanted the card to be on the cheery side, but it also needed the seriousness of letting her know that I am praying for her. 

Let me just start by saying that the MISTI tool is the absolute bomb!   I finally caved and bought one last week from Simon Says Stamp.  This was the first card that I made with it.  And, guess what?  I didn't only make one of this card, I made 6!  Because it's THAT easy with the Misti.  Perfect placement, perfect stamping.  I think I'm in love....

Thank you to card-making guru Jennifer McGuire for the inspiration for this card.

Pretty simple card, so it doesn't really need much explaining, unless you are not familiar with the Misti.  If you're not, give it a whirl on YouTube.  It will change your life.  The "Get Well" stamp is from the Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler set and I used all Hero Arts inks, well almost.  The black text was done using Black Onyx VersaFine so it would stand out.  The "sending hugs and prayers" and the little heart are a Hero Arts exclusive for Simon Says Stamp.   I also used some Glossy Accents on the little heart for a finishing touch.  So, without further adieu, here's my card.

Hero Arts colors used:  Pale Tomato, Red Royal, Orange Soda, Butter Bar, Tide Pool, Cornflower,  Soft Lilac, Iris chalk ink, Grape Juice and Raspberry Jam. 

Thank you for stopping by!
