Inspired Stamps- DT choice

HisWord, Inspired Stamps, Distress inks background
and Martha Stewart ribbon.
Hello and happy Thursday!  This is a very busy time of the year for many with end of school year, graduations, graduation parties, and other such events.  It is very easy to get overwhelmed and forget what is important.  I made a very clean and simple (CAS) card reminding me what is important.
The stamps came from a set called His Word, Inspired Stamps.  I used my favorite distressed inks (peeled paint, wild honey, tumbled glass, broken china and faded blue jeans) to create the back ground.  I wanted it to look somewhat like a sunset.  I stamped right on the background, I wanted to leave everything as is, but I found myself needing to color in the candlestick.  So I did with Prisma pencils and then added a little stickles for the flame.  It seemed a little off balance so I added the turquoise (Martha Stewart) ribbon on the side.  I tinkered with the bow until I thought it was perfect.  The card base is Summer sunrise (PTI).  I rounded the corners for a bit of softness and voila!
I hope you like it, please leave me some kind words and thanks for stopping by.  Please visit the other Inspired Stamps DT members to see what they have created for you this week.
