Praying Your Day will be filled with Joy!


Hello everyone! Happy Saturday!
I made this card with the March Our Daily Bread designs sets The Lord has Risen and the sentiment is from Easter Blessings.  I also entered it in to the Our Daily Bread designs Shining the Light Challenge, which was to think spring/ new life. (If you have not been playing these weekly challenges, you SHOULD!  A great chance to win prizes and awards!)  Today's inspiration challenge on SCS was Cutest Food and while I can only link to the page, not the photo, I chose a beautiful cake iced in this color spring green and the field was filled with little violet colored flowers and it screamed spring.

For this card I used some dp from the ODBd store (Prima Indeed Lilac) and Bazzill purple and green.  I also used my Lotus Blossom Spellbinders, which I cut from white and sponged with SEI Clover Chalk Ink.  I then wove the May Arts ribbon in and out of the Lotus and tied it with thin wire behind the blossom so it poofed in the front and got tight in the back.  The ribbon is pretty wide so if I didn't tie it, it just didn't look right.  I stamped one extra Violet image and cut them all out, colored with Copics and popped up on dimensionals arount the sentiment which is cut with the SB Label 6.  The butterflies are punches from MS.  The one on the top left is punched from a scrap of K&Co flocked Vellum! Yummy!

I hope you like my springy card, and  thanks for visiting!  Blessings on your weekend!

Oh my, Grace!

This is such a sensational card. I love everything in it. The bright purple, lilac colored paper and gorgeous greens are wonderful together! The violets are so pretty as a plant all together, and peeking out through your lattice! I love that satin ribbon and bow, you are so creative in how you used it! Look at those grand butterflies! I love the gold with the purple! Oh, I just saw the tiny butterflies! Of course the sentiment is perfect. I hope your day will be filled with "JOY!"

Absolutely incredible card, Grace!
