For my priest at church

This card is for my priest at church. Members of the congregation signed up for dates to send cards to Monsignor. I chose three dates - July 24, Oct 27, and Nov 20. These are all birthdates in the Harris family (so I wouldn't forget what dates I signed up for!)

I used some blog challenges to get me going. By using monochromatic papers, layered flowers, stamps, and a label, I fulfilled the Use It! challenge. As I was playing with these pieces of paper, I thought that I should find a sketch to guide me. I decided to used Kazan's sketch.

Supplies: All were from my stash. (Oh so old papers!) Bazzill cardstock. K&Co patterned paper. Chatterbox vellum. Silk flowers. Ribbon. Stamp set: CTMH He Is Risen and Faith.


  1. very cute card! I like the vellum you used and the torn bottom piece for an added look! awesome take on the sketch!

    Clouds :D

  2. This is lovely - I am sure your Priest is going to love it. What a clever idea to use dates of members of your family to remind you. Will have to remember that one!
    Thanks for playing
