GIU Day 4 Too Beautiful For Earth

Welcome back to Day 4 of GIU! Thank you all for the comments this week.



I used Too Beautiful for Earth by Phyllis Harris stamp set on this card and stamped all 4 images on typing paper with Ranger Jet Black Archival ink. The card base is Recollections 4" x 5.5" White Value Pack. The yellow background paper is from Basic Grey Saturday Morning 6" x 6" pad. I don't usually use yellow paper since it's not a color I like, but I thought it fits with this stamp set. I used NPW Two Tones 50/50 Colored Pencils to color in the angel image. The gold trim/washi tape at the bottom is from a recent Halloween swap. I'm actually thinking about sending this card to First Baptist Church in Sutherland, TX after all those children and parents were killed this past Sunday. This world is becoming worse and worse. The more I look at the front of this card and the verse stamped inside it looks appropriate for them. If anyone would like to mail a card to them here is the address: First Baptist Church
P.O. Box 115
Sutherland Springs, TX 78161.

Thanks for stopping by and please come back tomorrow to see what I have in store for my last GIU post for this week and possibly the year. I've enjoyed this week! I'm actually participating in a blog hop tomorrow night- A Day of Thanks Blog Hop. Be sure to come back for both posts and hop along. I used a Unity stamp on my card for that hop, too! ;)

What a wonderful idea to send your beautiful card to the SBC - your card is beautiful and I am sure it will comfort those affected by the horrible senseless tragedy.
