SC221 - Praying for You

Today's Sketch Challenge (shown) for SCS at first made me scratch my head a bit. I needed to make a card for a seven-year-old boy for whom we have been praying as he prepares for his First Holy Communion. I had to keep it boylike, yet reverent. So I went with silvers, grays, and white. I must say, I really like how it turned out.

I stayed true to the sketch except I moved the sentiment panel Since I flipped the sketch, it would not have made sense to the side of the main image. I also learned a valuable lesson about applying adhesive to the back of a panel embossed with CB Swiss Dots. Kind of flattens them out.
Size: 5.5 x 4 inches
Paper: white cardstock; silver metallic paper
Ink: Encore silver; SU! Going Gray
Embossing: Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder
Stamps: SU! Thoughts and Prayers (sentiment) and Refuge and Strength (cross)
