Precious Girl ODBD Sketch

Good morning friends and stampers!!  Hope all is well.  And I hope you're enjoying some dry sunny days wherever you are - we're having a wet season and I'd love it if you could send some of your nice weather to us here in Virginia LOL :)!!!

My card today is for Tuesday's ODBD Shining Light Challenge #159 - it's a Sketch Challenge!!  This sketch worked perfectly with my sweet Precious Girl stamp released earlier this month.

To make this card I stamped and die-cut the little girl focal image - TWICE.  Then I delicately fussy-cut the precious girl image, added a bit of dimension using an embossing stylus to "round" the card stock a bit.  This gives here a sort-of "puffed" look.  I adhered the image using two thin foam tape strips in the center, and liquid glue around the edges.

Father in Heaven, hear my Prayer

It's hard to see in the main photo, but in real life the image looks 'puffed' out in the middle, but not around the edges.  It's kinda cool!!  Here's another angle that may show it better:

Then again maybe not LOL!!  Anyway I used Becca's bow maker for the little double-bow, and three different designer papers for the card layers.  The card base is white card stock.
