With God, All things are Possible!


Hello my friends!  I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful weekend!  I didn't really get much done because my back and sciatic nerve is still hurting, but I did manage to create one quick card to share with you.  I made this with this month's Our Daily Bread designs release, Be Joyful. 

 

 Isn't this a fun set?  I just love it!!!  I used Memento Ink on Flourishes card stock, and then just colored the centers of my flowers with a yellow Copic marker.  I used the larger image for the bg, and the smaller one for my sentiment panel, which I then cut out with the ODBD Custom SB Die, Elegant Ovals.  I matted the sentiment panel with a SB Lacey Oval die using a scrap of yellow from my scrap box.  I cut SB Romantic Rectangles for my outer border, piecing two together on a pattern match, since my card is square and needed a second section.  I stamped a border inside the card as well, just to give some extra life to the otherwise pure white card.  The sheer ribbon is from my stash forever,( so I'm entering this card in Use it Tuesdays)... and I added a butterfly made from a silk flower and ribbon as well as some bling.  

I am entering this in the following challenges:
 Papelito's Stamps  Anything Goes, Through The Craft Room Door  - Always Anything Goes, Tuesday Alchemy -Anything Goes,
Twist Of Faith Card Challenges - Must include an inspirational sentiment or scripture - #1  Joy (This set is called Be Joyful, and my verse is one of joy), Use It Tuesdays - must use hoarded supply's   Use That Ribbon,Make it Monday - always Anything Goes, Paper Pretties - Create a Square Card Word are Wednesday - Scripture or encouraging words... this week thinking of Paula as she fights the battle of serious illness, as are many others.... I thought this verse was perfect!  

Thanks so much for stopping by!  This is pretty CAS for me, but I like it and it was done in a flash, and I really need to do a bunch right now for the card rack, so I have a feeling this set is going to be VERY well used! 
Have a blessed week!

A beautiful card Grace. I love that verse. Sometimes we get so down with our troubles that we need to be reminded that God is over all and can do magnificent things. Thank you for sharing :) Sarah x

Hi Grace! This is SO pretty. I saw this new set at ODBD and just fell in love with it. You've done an amazing job with it, as you always do with all their lovely stamps. This really blessed my heart, and I thank you SO MUCH for sharing it with us in this week's challenge at Word Art Wednesday. I am always SO VERY grateful when you share your beautiful art with us, Grace. Hope you're having a blessed week, and that you are doing well. God is so good, and I thank Him for YOU!
