Japan, you are in my thoughts and prayers

I was getting overwhelmed by the videos and images coming out of Japan in the wake of the earthquake and subsequent tsunami...So I decided a little crafting therapy was in order. :) I, of course, broke out my Pagoda cricut cartridge and thus this card was born. I used the Vintage Wallpaper background stamp from MarketStreetStamps.com to create my golden patterned paper. I stamped with distress embossing ink and pounced on perfect pearls in the perfect gold color. Super shiny and pretty in real life!
I used the textile cuttlebug folder for the black piece behind my image. The sentiment is from the Sympathy set from PinkByDesign. I think this set is out of stock, but keep checking. ;)

So thankful to be safe and sound. Praying for all of those who aren't.

  4. I love your work of art! Thank you for the prayers. My son is in the air force stationed in Misawa, north of Tokyo. He is safe and once they get their base up and in order, they will be out with rescue efforts.
