Special Card

Hi Everybody,

This is a special card I was asked to make and it is going all the way to a convent in Rome

I spent a lot of time thinking about this and planning my design around The Lords Prayer

I had several things that I was asked to incorporate but I didn't want it looking too fussy

I am very happy with the result and I hope that the lady it is intended for is happy with it too.

I have used Cream and white for the card and box and added in beautiful flowers.  The flowers, lace and the doves are  all from   Wild Orchid Crafts

The  Cross  is from a set of five by Spellbinders and I have cut my chosen one  five times and glued the layers together to make it stand proud from the card

The verse is The Lords Prayer and I have  printed it off my computer then cut it out with   Labels Eight

It has then been added with foam tape to   Decorative Labels Eight   and surrounded with the flowers

The box is made to match and I have used Acetate to produce the window.  The card inside is covered with tissue paper to keep it clean

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
