Fabulous Just the Way You Are !

This weeks scripture verse at Stampin Sisters in Christ is Isaiah 40:31: But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles, they shall run , and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint. " Kristine has a very interesting tidbit on an eagle's response to a storm. Breeze on over to the SSCC blog to read it here .

The challenge this week is to " mount up " or paper tole a part of your image. I have cut out my flower twice and paper pieced and mounted the middle center of the flower and also one of the leaves. The dp is by g.e.d. called Green Bird... it's a brighter shade of green IRL . Love it ! The flower and sentiment is from Verve. The sentiment was cut out , matted and embossed with an oval Nestie. I have added black Stickles to the center of the blossom , ribbon is from JoAnn's and gemstones from Archivers.

Have a good evening ! I'll be back on Thursday with another post.

Oh Crystal this is beautiful! I just love the color combo and that way the yellow flower pops off the page!!! Great take on the mounting up challenge!!!

Thank you for stopping by my blog and for your sweet comments! I bought the cross box at Hobby Lobby. It took a little to cover it because of the shape, I did have to add a couple extra panels to cover all sides, but it isn't hard and makes a nice size for chocolates or other goodies. The Fancy tags I elongated by cutting the long one and taping to the back of the short side. I hope you can find a box! Thanks again and happy Easter my friend!!!
