None of us is born thinking we are ordinary. Feeling special is an essential part of the human birthright. If you don’t think you are special, you won’t seek to contribute your gift to the world. -Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

Thoughts & Prayers ...

When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.  ~Kahlil Gibran

Good morning Everyone!
Today is the start of a new color challenge for The Outlawz Challenges.

Here is our inspiration picture.

Our challenge this week is to use pink, blue and gray with a fancy fold twist if we want.

I found a tutorial on Pinterest on how to do one of the popular "drape" folds. I thought I saved the link but apparently not so I need to go a hunting so I can link back.

Our sponsor this month is Bugaboo Stamps and I am using this image "Our Thoughts & Prayers Candle"

Like most of us, I am not fond of making sympathy cards, but they are a reality of life. I can not justify gifting someone with cards made from the heart only to hand them a store bought one during a painful time in their life. So I try to make these to have on hand for just those occasions.

This card is 5 x 7


SUPPLIES
Image: " Our Thoughts & Prayers Candle" from Bugaboo Stamps
Card stock: The Paper Studio & Stampin Up!
EF: "Swiss Dots" from ProvoCraft
Inks/Pens: Copics
Supplies: Rhinestones, Foam Dots, Adhesive tape

Thanks for stopping by!
