Do Not Be Anxious ... Triple Challenges

Ahh, nothing like an escape to the stamping room at the end of a busy day !

My card is for three challenges : CAS#61 which is for the sentiment to be the main image, ODBD which is to use faux stitching and Card Patterns Sketch#58 .

The DP is from the new Basic Grey " Green at Heart " paper pack. The "sentiment" is from Our Daily Bread Designs new Scripture Collection 4. Border punch is from Martha Stewart. The image was cut out and embossed with a Labels 4 Nestie. Faux stitching was with an Inkessentials pen. I don't own a working sewing machine so no question this is faux ! I certainly hope to remedy that in the future . Oh, the choices out there ! ( Any recommendations for a good sewing machine for stitching on cards is greatly appreciated ! ) Clear gemstones and satin ribbon and a butterfly charm finish it off.

Have a relaxing evening ! Hugs to you all !

What a soft, feminine card, Crystal. I love the papers, the butterfly charm and most esp. that verse. I hope you have a blessed day.

This is absolutely gorgeous!!! My nephew was admitted to the hospital yesterday after suffering with a freak allergic reaction. Prayer~ trusting God and asking him for healing ~ was the only thing that brought him through and gave everyone peace. God is so good! He is with us through all things and wraps his love around us.
Thank you for visiting my blog and letting me find yours ;)! It touched my heart to read your comment!
Hugs!
