Bee Happy and Thank You, Friend!

Splitcoast Sketch Challenge 520
Hi, everyone!!  This week over at Splitcoast, there were quite a few fun challenges which I did not want to miss, so I have combined them in the making of a birthday card for my sister-in-law, plus a card for a dear friend who is having some health issues.
For my first card, I have used Sketch Challenge 520, plus this week's Color Challenge of Black, White, and Hello Honey.  Since I do not have  the newest SU colors yet, I used So Saffron which was the closest color I had on hand. The background was stamped with the ODBD Gingham Background stamp, the image from 'Bee Happy' was stamped in So Saffron, then the scripture was overstamped in black. The little bee, also from 'Bee Happy', was stamped, colored, then cut out with the ODBD Custom 'Zinnia and Leaves' Dies set.

The Sketch Challenge 520 (at the top left) could be interpreted in a lot of fun ways.....I chose to use the sketch again but used a heart in the center instead of a circle. Today's Inspiration Challenge is to find a color combo from The Perfect Palette blog....I fell in love with these Homespun Colors....yummy!  The Ways to Use It Challenge is to create a Thank You card and the Friday Free 4 All Challenge is 'A CASE of admiration' a fellow stamper who encourages and inspires you. I chose this beautiful card by my ODBD design team sister, Cheryl Scrivens aka CherylQuilts. Cheryl is one of the sweetest human beings I have ever known and gives so much of herself to others. Her comments to all are so encouraging and wow, her creativity is inspiring in itself.  I am blessed to call her friend.....what an amazing Christian woman!!!  (Love you, Cheryl dear!!!)  For my card, I have used the ODBD Custom 'Ornate Hearts' Dies, corner dies from the ODBD Custom 'Ornate Borders and Flower' Dies, scripture verse from the 'Thank You' stamp set, and 'lots of hugs' stamp from the 'Mini Tag Sentiments' set, paper from the 'Heart and Soul Paper Collection', all from Our Daily Bread designs.
