CAS Mix-Up Card Challenge ~ April ~ Rubberbands

After watching Loll's video, I couldn't stop making these rubberband backgrounds!
This time I used a colored cardstock (PTI spring moss) and stamped my rubberbands using the same ink color.  It makes a fun background!  And I had requests for more "Praying for you" cards, and it has to say "our prayers" instead of "my" which makes it a little trickier!  I had to selectively stamp a sentiment that had prayers at the end, but I used a different stamp for the "you are in our", so it all worked!  Good thing I have my stamps in Evernote so that I could find those words!

PTI Tulip time
WPlus9  Sympathy Lilies sentiment (you are in our) 
PTI Beautiful blessings (prayers)
MFT Stitched Rectangle Scallop 
Heart Hugs, friends!

  11. Definitely loving the tone on tone effect and repeating it on the tulip stems was so smart. Great harmony and subtleness for the "OUR" sentiment ;-)
