A Prayer For You - My First Card for Cardabilities

I'm so excited to show you my very first card designed for Cardabilities!  We were given this great sketch to use, and I am in love with what the designers came up with!

I made the card for a friend who've been going through a tough time lately.  These are her favorite colors.  The inside says:  "God, please now my future see, make it clear where I should be. Open windows, close the doors, not my will, my God, but Yours."  The prayer was written by the author Karen Kingsbury for her book, "Fame."

I used several punches on this card:  Martha Stewart Heart Punch, Stampin' Up punches for the sentiment, and three flower punches.  The scalloped rectangles are Nestabilities, the cross is a Shapabilities die, and the flourishes are a Sizzlit die.  I embossed the background with my Cuttlebug and used a Fiskars border punch.

Hope you'll come on over and play with us at Cardabilities!

Here is the sketch:
