Sending Prayers

Hi Blog Friends!

Today, my post is for a
 Paper Trey Ink Make It Monday Challenge-#284. 
Background Stamping with Sentiment Stamps
You can find more information here:
Melissa gave us examples with her feminine touch
 using the new set Clouche Quarters & Clouche Spring Fillers. 
As always, Melissa created LOVELINESS for us!
I was playing around & planned to do two cards, but they melded into one. LOL
I hope you like!
I was in the mood to use blue & could only think of how lovely a light blue on lacy white would look..... I used the new Pen & Ink Sentiment Set for my background. 
This is a beautiful set! So many nice sentiments!

I also used PTI Dies- 
Make It Market Mini Kit- Lovely Lace- I adore this set,
Noted: Scalloped A2 Vertical Die- a FABULOUS basic die set,
& Mix & Mat Scallops- a wonderful addition to the basic die sets. 
I ADORE the dies at PTI, as you know.
PTI  offers the basic dies that help you build your stash, without having to buy them all at once! 
They all coordinate wonderfully & they even have MORE coming out the release for this month! 
Here is a close-up of the sentiment background, & the Lovely Lace Die.
I also used the set Mini Blooms.
 I wanted them to have some dimension; not only did I use Scotch Perm. Mounting Tape on my Mix & Mat Scallops Die, but I also used my McGill Stylus Kit on the little blooms, & adhered them with Multi-Med. Matte, using my Pick-Me-Up tool.

I added centers to my flowers with  Ranger- Liquid Pearls.
I thought it needed just a bit more sparkle & added 28 Lilac Lane Sequins- Pastels.

Inside, I used the same sentiment that I used on the front,
 & a Mini Bloom to coordinate with the front.

I'll be sending this to a dear friend!

Sending Prayers, & I KNOW He is listening!
