sending prayers


This week’s challenge at the Paper Players is a sketch by LeAnne.


To begin the challenge, I cut a piece of the Perennial Essence DSP into three sections to mimic the sketch. The DSP blends beautifully with Purple Posey (a new In Color), so I used that for the card base. Then, I layered the three cuts of DSP on Highland Heather Cardstock, giving them a 1/16 inch border.


I thought about adding some flowers, but the Detailed Dragonfly die was begging to be used. Dragonflies go with waterlilies, and the Sparkle Glimmer Paper was perfect to make them glisten. 


All I needed was the sentiment, and I chose “sending prayers” from Itty Bitty Greetings. I stamped it in Gorgeous Grape ink on Purple Posey Cardstock, and cut it with a Bunch of Banners die. The sentiment seemed appropriate for this peaceful scene with the dragonflies sending up prayers.


The Detailed Dragonfly Dies and Bunch of Banners Dies are retiring June 3rd, so order while supplies last. The Perennial Essence DSP and Purple Posey Cardstock is in the new, 2019-2020 Catalog, and can be ordered June 4th.

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great day!
