A sweet card & FFC 4 Winners

Click Here for FFC#5 "Critters"
Happy Monday my friends!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I spent a good portion of my weekend getting creative and filming so lots to share in the next couple weeks. Today I have a card that I want to share with you that I made for a special friend who is going through a lot right now. I sure hope she likes it when she gets it.

I made a standard A2 card using some gorgeous Cherry Red CS by Gina K Designs as my card base. For my first layer, I used some Winter Wisteria CS by Papertrey Ink cut down to 4 x 5 1/4". For my next layer, I used some Vintage cream CS also by PTI and cut down to 3 3/4"x 5. I stamped my sentiment,"Praying you through your most difficult moments" in momento tuxedo black ink onto the vintage cream CS. The sentiment stamp comes from the Poster Board Sentiments stamp set by Gina K Designs. I love this stamp set. It has a lot of great sentiments.

My image is a digital stamp by Whimsy Stamps called Tulip Umbrella that I colored in using my spectrum Noir markers and fussy cut out. Once my image was colored in, I added some glossy accents to the tulips and the to the bow for that extra little something. Both my image and the main layer were inked up around the edges using some peeled paint distress ink by Tim Holtz. To finish off my card I added some beautiful red polka dot ribbon from May Arts. Below is a picture of the inside sentiment "Only God", another Gina K stamp.
Well that is my card for you for today my friends. I hope you like it! Now on to announcing the winners of last week's "Anything Goes" challenge. Can you believe we had over 100 entries???
