Christian Paper Crafts Scripture Saturday

Ahhhhh...finally's been a long week! Today I am celebrating the weekend with a couple of simple cards, the first for Christian Paper Crafts' Scripture Saturday Challenge. This week's challenge is to use the verse from Psalm 84:12 on your layout, card, or altered item. Since I did not have this verse in a stamp, I printed it out from my pc. The background stamps are Stampin' Up "Artifacts" old stand-by for masculine cards!

I have included the following challenges in this card:
Just Add Ink: "man card" with Kraft, Baja, and Chocolate;
Raise the Bar: Use a sticker on your project.


This is a fun birthday card I made using Spellbinders Nested Butterflies. The Memory Box "Enchanted" designer paper was cut out with the largest die.....the card was cut out by hand after embossing the same die onto the lilac cardstock.....for me, it's easier to cut out the embossed shape rather than trace it. The sentiment from the Our Daily Bread designs' set, Happy Birthday, was cut out by hand, sponged, and popped up. The flower and pearls are by Zva Creative. There are several layers of Pearl Glimmer Mist for a shimmery finish.

I have used the following challenges for this card:
Splitcoast's Inspiration Challenge: I chose this Purple Porched Birdhouse from Birdhouse Blessings Etsy Store;
One Stop Craft Challenge: Patterns;
Paper Play: Anything goes;
Stampin B's: Birthday;
Stampin Royalty: K.I.S.S.= Keep It Simple Sweetie;
Party Time Tuesday: Anything goes Birthday;
Crazy Challenge: Birthday;
Ooh La La: Birthday;
Cowgirl Challenge: Anything Goes.

Thanks for stopping by today!! Come back Sunday morning for Our Daily Bread designs' New Release/Blog Hop........there are six new sets and some brand new very exciting accessories to be released as don't want to miss out!!!!

Angie this is so pretty! I love how you used the Artifacts set and paired it with this scripture. Perfect, your use of the star stickers and nesties really makes the scripture stand out - just wonderful! Thank you so much for joining us at Raise The Bar this week.
