PTI's January 2017 Blog Hop

It's been a couple month's since I have entered a card in the Blog Hop by PTI 

Here is the inspiration photo
Blog Hop Inspiration 

I used PTI's Botanical Blocks III embossed in white on black cardstock and then used my Prismacolor Pencils to color.
Keep It Simple Praying for You.  I first tried just stamping with white pigment ink but lost the outline and am not good with outlining so decided to try embossing it.  However the leaves turned out better with the ink than embossed cause there wasn't much to color, but I am happy with it.

Thanks for stopping by.
