Spiritual Retreat

We were fo follow this fun sketch over at Tuesday Morning
Hello there!

Happy Saturday to you all!  I made this card for a co-worker who is going on a spiritual retreat.  Another co-worker is sponsoring her at work and asked us to bring in a card for her.  She will be surprised by all the cards while on the retreat.  It will be our way of saying we are thinking of her and supporting her! 

I knew what stamp to use for this card.  It's a great verse that could be used for almost any occasion.  I had fun with the doily and fussy cutting the flowers.  Pearls, lace, ribbon, and sewing added to finish off the card.  Thanks for looking here today!  Take care and have a great weekend, hugs!
