Card of Encouragement: "Prayers"

I recently found an A2-size stamp at a thrift store and was not sure I'd like how it stamped...but I do! I think it is a small bundle of lilacs (a favorite of mine!). I used TH Distress Ink "shaded lilac" on the whole stamp, then wiped off the leaf part and added TH Distress Ink "peeled paint" with a sponge dauber. After stamping it I added a bit more "shaded lilac" on the left corner, again using a sponge dauber...and finished up by adding Stickles "Star Dust" glitter glue.

Inks- TH Distress Shaded Lilac & Peeled Paint, Memento New Sprout
Stamps- Paper Inspirations Lilac Fresco, FSJ Doily Blooms, StampingScrapping Sentiments
Daubers- Tsukineko mini daubers
Dies- FSJ Tag Elements
Glitter Glue- Stickles Star Dust
Ribbon- from my stash
The bow was made using my Craft-DeeBowz bowmaker.
