Praying for You - CPS#224

Hello Delightful friends and family!!
Tami Mayberry was our guest designer at Christian Paper Crafts in June and it was a pleasure having her join the team and share her wonderful card making skills with our community!  She owns a fun challenge blog called Card Positioning Systems. New sketches are posted on Sunday mornings along with 3-4 design ideas. More design ideas are posted on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  You do not have to have a blog in order to participate. Simply upload your card to your favorite online gallery and leave a link to that page in the comments section.  The following sketch is this weeks challenge #224 and my card follows.

 Here is my card: Praying for You  (CPS #224)  I really liked the simplicity of the layout and there are many possibilities and styles that could be used with this sketch.
Yummy papers!!

Here is a close up to see the layering and inking of the edges of each flower. 
 I've used the Sizzix Alterations Tattered Flower die with the Basic Grey Sweet Stitches Designer Paper and a cream colored paper flower that was in my Taylored Expressions Key Ingredient kit to make the layered flower.  Vintage Photo (Distress Ink) was used to age the edges of each piece. The button was from my button jar.
The PRAYING FOR YOU sentiment is from the Care and Comfort set from Taylored Expressions. 
All the designer paper is Basic Grey Sweet Stitches and the card stock is Bazzill. 
 The finished card is A2 size.

Well, thanks for looking and have a fantastic weekend.  Be safe and God bless you and God bless America!  Have a blessed 4th of July.  (Hope to be back before that!)
