Thinking of You

This has been some week with my daughter having to go back into the hospital with a new born, but God was good and she is back home with her family again.  So not many post this week, but I was able to get this card together last night with help from the sketch challenge at Christian Paper Crafts Sketch Tuesday.  They have a challenge for each day of the week, so check them out.  It is a wonderful place where you can stamp and also enjoy Christian fellowship.

I don't do a lot of layers, but as soon as I saw this sketch I knew that I would be using this bird punch.  It was just the right size for this spot.  I was also inspired by stampin' connection's color challenge this week to use the colors of Pear Pizzazz, Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight, Peach Parfait.  The Daffodil Delight is in the bottom piece of Designer Paper.

So to help you with the size of each cut here, I will give you the paper size.

I cut a piece of Whisper White card stock 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 and folded in half.  I then cut the Sunny Garden Designer Paper at 5 3/8 X 4 1/8 and attached to the Whisper White.  The strip of poppy parade was next and it was cut at 3/4 X 5 1/2 and attached approximately 1 1/8" from the bottom of the card.  I then cut the peach parfait card stock at 3 X 4 1/2 and attached close to the top and left side of the card as seen in picture.  The pear pizzazz was cut at 3 X 3 1/4 and then embossed using the perfect dots embossing folder and attached as seen above.  Then finally I did the last two cuts.  The poppy parade was cut at 2 5/8 X 1 7/8 and then the whisper white was cut at 2 1/2 X 1 3/4 and attached together.  I then attached the punched out leaves from the extra large bird punch to the white and then using the perfect polka dots embossing folder to emboss this piece before attaching to the card.  I then attached this to the card and punched the bird out using the sunny garden designer paper and for the wings using the peach parfait.  Adhered this to the card using a pop dot to give some dimension to the bird.  Once this was all together I then used the stamp set Three Little Words to add the sentiment using poppy parade classic ink.  The last step was spritzing the whole card with the vanilla shimmer smooch spritz, loving that stuff.

Thanks for looking and hope you have a wonderful day!
