Love Peace and Joy... the world's greatest treasures!!
This is my entry for the Cupcake Craft Challenge blog. Lauren's Sketch was to lovely to work with, but I opted to turn it sideways. This card has a lot of matting and layering, and one has to be careful to leave the same space between each panel etc.
The coordinating poemstone in the bottom left corner is layered underneath, and I punched a circle so that it shows at the front. I used transperencies to cover the front, and the sentiment and red gems are layered on top. If you see the different photos attached , in the bottom one you'll see the design without the transparency on top, it shows the difference fromthe photo of the card when you see it with the transperency on. I pray that Lauren will like this card, and also the person who will receive it! ( not telling obviously.. she may be watching!! )

I am a Religous Sister, and have been for the last 21 years. I have always had a love for drawing, collages, and anything to do with art and crafts. Some years back started to draw and paint posters, and cards once in a while. About three years ago I decided to have a go with real cardmaking, and have been hooked since! I also use this hobby to involve kids I take care of, and they love to make cards themseves to the people they love! :)
I think that when you give someone a hand crafted card, you are showing that you really care, and is worth to spend time and money on her/him to make him something unique.. a part of yourself!
Presently my days are full of kids, kids who live in a Children's Home, kids who are so energetic and burst with life.. and I really love each and every one of them. We make each other's day, and they are also so very proud of me and my cards!
