Sending Prayers

One of my favorite challenge groups is the Challenge Your Stash group on SCS, under the capable and organized leadership of my friend Barb. The idea is we can't shop for anything when making our monthly challenge card (which we post on the 28th of each month). This month I'm a day late, as I had a guest designer post on my blog yesterday.

We take turns choosing the theme. This month it was Barb's turn and she has challenged us to make a slimline or mini slimline card with one additional requirement. The card must have a sentiment on it.

This challenge theme made me nervous. I love the slimline cards others make and have attempted a few of my own, too... but I've never liked any of the ones I've made. I sure didn't want to fail the group, and especially not my friend Barb, so I gave it my best effort and I can honestly say it's the best mini slimline card I've ever made. 

Now my next challenge is getting a descent picture, since I also have a difficult time photographing slimline cards.

Here's the inside:

I hope Barb and the other Challenge Your Stash gals like my card.

I feel the same way about slimline cards, Jeanette! I struggle with them. It's tough to break out of our A2 comfort zone. But you nailed it with this beauty!
