You Are In My Prayers Purple & Gold Card

Welcome back! Today I am posting a card I made for a friend who recently lost a loved one. Sympathy cards are the hardest, I think.

I noodled around with ideas from several current hops and challenges and came up with this lovely card that will fit some of them nicely and I think it is a nice sympathy card:

I had a hard time getting a good picture of it that shows it off well. Here it is in natural light:

I am SO happy that JustRite Stampers has re-opened! I have many of their lovely stamps and look forward to seeing what they come up with next! Their current challenge is Back to Nature (which you can find HERE), so I chose a floral background and a flower bunch.

Winnie and Walter is celebrating World Card Making Day with various challenges, including Use Gold/Metallic with Lydia. You can read about it HERE. I wish I had some of their lovely stamps, but don’t – yet. I did emboss the background and flowers with gold and used Metallic Gold Gelatos on the sentiment. There is also metallic glitter in the ribbon.

The Damsel of Distressed is hosting The Hop to Stop featuring the color purple to raise awareness of those who suffer from domestic violence. You can find the details HERE. After embossing with gold, I took Grape, Metallic Grape and Lavender Gelatos and spread them over the embossed background.

Then I took a baby wipe and spread the color around and it absorbed into the white cardstock. So easy and such lush colors in real life. I also used PEARLustre Tanzanite (purple) embossing powder on the sentiment and frame and various shades of violet and purple Copic markers to color the flowers.
