Inspired Thinking of You

Hello friends! I hope you are having a blessed weekend!

I decided to play again in the Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge this week...

It was based on this wonderful verse:
Psalm 19:14: Let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable in your sight Oh, Lord, my strength and my redeemer.

I love this Scripture! I love to pray this to God often. It reminds me of a dear old lady we knew in our Church many years ago... she would close every prayer with this verse! Anyway...we were to make a card for someone... a thinking of you or praying for you type card.

I also wanted to play the Inspiration Challenge over on SCS. I chose this as my inspiration piece, from the Kir DeVris Website. I used Bazzill for my base, layered with white and then on the back of another sheet of the Bazzill I stamped my image from Get Well, a Sept. release from Our Daily Bread Designs, in Craft White and embossed with White EP. I stamped the image twice so I could cut it out and pop up the butterflies later. I stamped the sentiment from the Sept. coordinating set, Thinking of You with VersaMagic Niagra Mist and clear embossed. I cut the sentiment out with a Spellbinders Ribbon Slide, sponged lighty and mounted over a panel I cut twice with my SB Lattice Borderability. A little ribbon, a little bling in the way of pearls and crystals, and a few butterflies I punched with my MS punch and stamped with the flourish from this set, and I was done.

I don't do CAS well... this was my attempt at it and while I think I captured the IC piece, that's about all I can say. I need more practice at CAS! Also, the color in the photo looks gray but it is really a misty green and quite a pretty color.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop and look and have a blessed weekend!

I think this is very elegant looking, I love the bling and the way you did the butterflies. I thought it was gray until I read a little further down, but either way, it is very pretty.

This is too lovely for CAS, sorry, but I don't believe it qualifies! :) So pretty as usual, it does look gray in the photo and even in that shade would be lovely, but I will believe you that it is green.
