Faith

Joy is hosting a challenge on her blog to highlight a card that inspired you. I spent some wonderful time perusing through Ellie's fabulous blog looking at all her beautiful work.  I was inspired by her various techniques and  I wanted to try using the dragging of the ink pad across the paper to give the rough textured look.

This card was made for someone special and is going to be sent off today as they are going through some difficult things right now.

I decided to use the easel technique and show off a hidden message.


The outside of the card looks a little plain but opens up to reveal the little message of faith and the same flowers repeating.
