Lifting You Up in Prayer

Alright, this card sure was fun to make and an out-right CASE of a card from the magazine Card Creations. I used the digital stamp set from Clear Dollar Stamps called Lifting You Up. I absolutely love this set, I use it often. Now I want to submit this for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge, create a card or project that depicts the sharp contrast of black & white or ivory (I used ivory). I die cut the clouds out of felt, popped up the balloon after coloring and cutting it out, zig zag stitched the scalloped sides (of course in the middle of sewing my bobbin ran out of thread...hate when that happens), and added some pearls to the balloon. Like I said, I had fun with this one.
