Special Blog Hop for Dawn McVey

Hello and welcome to my blog!

A special blog hop sponsored by Papertrey Ink is underway for Dawn McVey, who has been a huge influence to many in the crafting world with her beautiful designs and joyful spirit. Dawn has undergone a small intestine transplant after suffering with medical difficulties for years. I invite you to visit the hop HERE to read Dawn's story. 
I've loved following Dawn's blog for years and have been so inspired by her work and journey. Here's the get well card that I made for her using the stamp set that she designed called Floral Sketches

I stamped the design onto white card stock and afterwards die cut the word "prayers" from the panel and popped it up with foam tape.

You can see the depth it adds in this close up.  

After glueing it down, I covered the sentiment die cut with lots of Wink of Stella and added an outline with the white gel pen to make the word stand out a bit more.  

I kept my card clean and simple so that I could play along with my favorite challenge CTS #246. 

I'm so glad you came by today, hope the day you're having is fabulous! 

Be yourself
     Delight in your craft 
        Make something beautiful!

Supplies used
Stamps: PTI - Floral Sketches, Hero Arts Stamps and Cuts Prayers

This is one of my favorite flower sets, and you've made it extra-special with your sparkly 3-D prayer sentiment! Beautiful colors, too!

Oh, this is beautiful! Wonderful take on the sketch!

Leslie Miller said...

That's pretty amazing how you used your flowers for the sketch. Brilliant! Love that inset die cut sentiment, and your Wink of Stella shows up beautifully in the photo. Dawn is way too young to have such problems, but thank goodness for medical advances!

So pretty! Love how you used the eclipse technique for a soft sentiment.
