Thoughts and Prayers

This is my card for the Swappers Anonymous New Catalog Set swap! This is a great set--especially if you find yourself needing a sympathy card!

I had seen so many cards done with this beautiful set, and I wanted to send my Swap Sisters something a little bit different--a little *more*. And this is what I ended up with! I markered the tree with Old Olive and Chocolate Chip. It's hard to see in the photo, but there is glitter on some of the leaves.

The circle is cut with my beloved Big Shot, using the Scallop Circle die. I used the Cropadile to make the holes in the scallops. Then it just seemed to need a little "something," so I added some paper piercing. Sometimes I just don't know when to quit. LOL

There are several great sentiments in this set--I know it will get lots of use at my house! You can check out the rest of the swaps in the Stampin Addicts Gallery!
