Believe in Miracles

This one is for my friend Maria! She is waiting results from her latest scans..... waiting, praying, believing.....that her cancer will be GONE! It's been a long, hard summer for her with intense treatments. 
This card is for her, letting her know I believe in miracles and I am praying for positive news. 

I used the latest and greatest,  Jenn's Deconstructing sketch. Another amazing one to work with! You can find that one HERE. 

I used some pretty Studio Calico papers along with my go-to neutrals, MFT Kraft, whip cream and this time a touch of Soft Suede (SU!).  A few MFT Die-namics-RECTANGLE STAX 2 and TRADITIONAL TAG STAX and this card came together quickly. 

The sentiment is from the cutest girlie girl set, CS about Audrey Hepburn. The font included in this set just makes me happy. I stamped it in  stone Amuse ink (love the grey on the kraft!).  

I added a beautiful layered up butterfly as my circle element from the sketch. I cut two layers of each size and added foam dimensional between each layer. These were cut from the BUTTERFLIES DIE-NAMICS. Some hemp twine added texture and a couple of antenna! 

The tag was finished off with cotton twill ribbon and a SNO CONE button! 

Have a great weekend! We are supposed to get the effects of Hurricane Issac up here and be pounded with rain this weekend. Not good for a Soccer Tournament. Hoping to stay dry.
