A Praying for You Card

This card was totally inspired by a Pinterest pin. Thinking of a patterned paper with a large floral led me straight to my Stampin' Up Attic Boutique collection in the stash.  I picked out patterned paper to coordinate.

The most interesting part of making this card was making the shadow for the framed sentiment.  I used another pin with these instructions to get me there.I cut the frame out of white card stock three times, slicing the pieces apart as shown.

I used four pieces to glue to the back of the die cut out of yellow patterned paper.  This is a fantastic technique for making matting behind metal dies that aren't nesting.  I think it really makes the front of this card. 
On the inside, I layered some matching patterned paper from the collection and colored card stock creating a small space to write a heartfelt note.

I've linked this up with Word Art Wednesday's Challenge #129: Anything Goes.  Come on over to join the fun or just gawk at some amazing art.
