Thinking of you

I made this card for a blogger friend who is facing a challenge in her life right now.  All of the cuts came from Storybook, one of my new carts.  I actually had to do a little post-Cricut doctoring with my scissors.  The image has some curly-cues inside and outside of the frame.  I needed to trim the inside ones to have room for the sentiment.  When I went to put the card together, I realized that I must have miscalculated on my Gypsy and cut the image a bit too big, so I had to cut the curls from the outside as well.  The sentiment is from Dee's Bugaboo Boutique.  She has lots of great free scripture word art.  I ran the brown card front through the Cuttlebug Scrollwork folder.  I added 3 jewels to the bottom with my i-rock.

Please excuse the poor photography.  My husband is out with the camera right now, so I had to use the built-in one on my laptop.
