(2012 c43) Matt 11:28 With Sympathy

With love & prayers of comfort I made this card for a sweet friend for the loss of her dear husband.

With this card I am stretching myself to try shabby chic.  I used Sizzix Rays embossing folder.  I inked one side of the folder with Versamark & ran through my Cuttlebug.  Then I heat embossed with gold EP. The rays make me think of resurection, and the second coming of Christ, and our hope in Him.  I used crinkled seam binding for my bow & added pearls to the sentiment which was cut out & framed with Labels 18 die by Spellbinders.   The sentiment is Come Unto Me Matt. 11:18 by Verve Stamps.
