Sending Prayers

The challenge this week at Less is More is to use
Brown & Pink
I used this sketch from the Clean and Simple blog
and I embossed the rectangle area for One Layer Wednesday (OLW) being hosted by Karen at Snippets -
I wanted to create an illusion of a sunset on the border, with the color going from brown to pink. . .  It's ok, of course it looked much better in my mind than it does on paper. 
Here are a few snapshots of how I accomplished the outer area with the embosssing:

This may be my last post for a bit.  School starts tomorrow.  It's been a great summer!
  • stamps & paper: PTI
  • ink: PTI and Stampin Up and Staz-On
  • butterfly: stamped with Staz-On and colored with copic - a bit of glitter on the front
Thanks for looking and your lovely comments.
