Things Hoped For


What a wild weather day today - I don't remember there being tornadoes in October before!  We are all fine here, there was an EF-2 Tornado about 15 miles from us, thankfully no one was seriously injured there.  I was beginning to think my muse blew away with the wind, as I had planned on being in the studio today, but found myself watching the weather outside instead.  I did manage to head back after dinner to create this card.


My inspiration started with this Sketch Saturday Sketch and the Tuesday Throwdown Challenge  - Sentimentally Yours


In place of the circles I've added some Zva Flourish Pearls.  The Butterfly and Decorative Edges are from Heartfelt Creations Decorative Butterfly and Border Die .    I stamped the sentiment from Heartfelt Creations Faith Heb. 11:1 set in Chocolate on a Vanilla Panel, then layered onto a Chocolate panel.  The beautiful papers are Websters Pages (thanks Sue!).

I finished off the card with a light misting of Perfect Pearls Spray in Pearl - gotta love the added shimmer!  Finished Size 5-1/4" x 5-1/4".

Oh WOW! Quite lovely! Sounds like you needed faith to get through this day! Happy to hear it missed you. I've been through 3 tornadoes and it's not fun!

Lisa, I'm so glad your muse wasn't gone with the wind! The storms sound scary. I heard about the midwest and the bad weather there. Parts of our state are in for tornados and such tonight. We are a little east of the danger zone.

Your card is very elegant. It was also one that made me hungry with the chocolate and vanilla. I love the butterflies and the "pearls".

BREATH TAKING CARD!. I was raised around tornados and they are mighty scarry. West coast doesn't get many of them but then we deal with the earth quakes.

Such a beautiful card. All the lovely embellies really help show off the scripture. Thanks for sharing with us at TT this week.

This is a beautiful card, Lisa! I particularly love the pearl flourishes and the embellishment above the sentiment.

Your flourishes and the way you angled your image really set this card off. Another beauty.
