Freshly Made Sketches: Sending Prayers

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Jennifer Timko and here’s what I did with it!

FMS 444

I had a very specific purpose for this one.  A dear friend's husband has some chronic conditions that appear to be worsening.  He had testing done a few weeks ago and they get the results this Friday.  This card is all about her. She, of course, would want prayers for her husband and I do keep him in my prayers - but I wanted to send something that is clearly just for her. 

I love this detailed envelope - it's fairly new from Mama Elephant. The edges are separate dies which gives it so much detail.  It is already has the slit where the opening appears to be so you can slip in the greenery which is also part of the set. Once again, it's my favorite kind of die and card - the die adds lots of detail but it all comes together quickly and easily!

I hope to see you playing along with us this week at Freshly Made Sketches.
