My card was inspired by the tragic events that happened in the Colorado movie theater a few weeks ago.  I felt horrible about that event and my heart broke for all those touched by that senseless act of terror.  I pray that all those impacted by that dreadful event will be comforted by the love and support of their family, friends, church and community.    
I began by stamping the yellow Bazzill cardstock with Memories Yellow ink. I had a strip of cardstock by Crepe Paper and decided to cut it up into little strips so I could assemble the strips front and back on a cream cardstock layer.  I wanted the patterned paper layer and the ribbon to show completely on this card so I modified the sentiment layer by cutting the scalloped oval and tucking it under the strips.  
Supplies Used:
Heartfelt Creations:  Vintage Word Background, Trust in the Lord
Bazzill Cardstock:  Yellow, black
Crepe Paper patterned paper
Watercolor Paper
Versafine Brown ink
Memories Yellow Ink
Ranger Tea Stain Distress Ink
Spellbinders Die Large Scalloped Oval
Black Gingham ribbon
Pop Dots
