MMSC#47 ... A Virtuous Woman

Hi Friends ... Happy Thursday!

My two new sets of stamps from Our Daily Bread arrived this week ... woo hoo ...and when I saw the sketch challenge at Midnight Madness ...I knew what I wanted to create ! You can see the sketch here.

If you have not read Proverbs 31 I highly encourage you to do so. It's a wonderful sketch of a virtuous woman of God. I have taken the liberty to choose 7 words to describe the characteristics of this admirable woman. I'm sure there are others. I have computer generated the words on the left and cut them out with a rectangle Nestie, mounted onto the left panel. The larger sentiment and vine border is new from Our Daily Bread. DP is from October Afternoon. Buttons from Basic Grey, twine from May Arts, bow is punched with a Martha Stewart punch, ribbon ( tab) from JoAnn's and lower corner tab punched with a SU corner tab punch. That rounds it out. What do you think ? I had such fun with this card and really like the finished look !

Have a glorious Easter weekend ! What HOPE we have ! HE IS RISEN !

Big hugs !

Crystal, that is SO pretty! I just love the DP and the lacing. And that is one of my favorite verses! I guess I should call it one of my favorite "goals". :-D
Happy Easter!
