My Soul Will Rejoice

Today's card was inspired by a couple of challenges... the Our Daily Bread Shining the Light challenge to make a shaped card, and this week's Deconstructed sketch for a circular card.  I also wanted to play along with the Paper Smooches LoveFest challenge on SplitCoast, so my card needed to be either cute and fun or classy and elegant.  I chose classy and elegant!

I chose this beautiful verse from the set Easter Blessings as my focal point.  What a blessing to be able to share God's Word with others on our cards!

I used a Standard Circle die to cut out my cardbase, and then added a scalloped mat and a layer of designer paper from the MME Bluebell 6x6 pad.  The colors in this pad are so warm and inviting!  I stamped my sentiment and hand cut a banner, then diecut the different parts of my flower with the Blooms Three dies.  I sponged the edges of my patterned paper with ink to give a little more definition, and then put my card together, adding a little gold string under the flower to add a little sparkle.  A few rhinestones on the flag and my card was complete!

Here are the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store products I used...
Spellbinders Circles & Petite Circles

Thanks so much for stopping by!
