Sharon is the destination for our cards today. She loves studying the bible and loves the color purple. The sentiment was computer generated. The Penny Black stamp was colored with Memento ink and distress markers before spritzing with water. Why the dots? The inevitable black smudge I always seem to get. Wish they would sell enamel accents by the gallon. The upper right corner looked a bit bare so a scroll was stitched to mime the flight of the butterfly. Thanks for looking.

Nancy this is gorgeous! I love this! I think the black dots look perfect, just like they belong there, no mistakes only happy endings! I like the font of your verse and the pretty sponging. Sharon will love this one. Thanks for sending this to her.

Nancy, this is so beautiful. The colors are outstanding and this is such a wonderful card for your recipient. Smudges are not our friends but you did a super cover-up...no one would ever know. Loving your stitching.

Oh so pretty - great cover for the smudge, and the stitching is exquisite.
I think you asked about stamping the verse - I admire the crispness in other cards and feel mine is not like it should be - I adhere the clear stamp to an acrilic block.
