Praying for You

For this card, I cut a 1 1/8 x 3 3/8 strip of Whisper White and stamped my image before cutting it into 1 1/8" squares. The squares were then matted on 1 1/4" squares of Chocolate Chip.

The sentiment was stamped in Chocolate Chip and then punched with the 1 3/8" circle punch. I wanted to make this a SU! only card, so I resisted the temptation to add a 1 1/2" layer of Baja Breeze before adhering to my scallop circle. (Just as a side note, I think it's interesting that SU! came out with a 1 3/4" circle punch before a 1 1/2". I have a 1 1/2" circle punch from my pre-SU! days and find that I use it quite a bit for layering when sentiments or images don't quite fit on the 1 1/4" and really need the 1 3/8". Anyway, just my thought for the day.)

Thanks for looking!
