Our Refuge!

When I saw the challenge for Clean and Simple today at Christian Paper Crafts, I thought I have to do that one.  You can find the post for it at Christian Paper Crafts Creative Blog here!  I just love the write up that Marsha used, but we were to use the tearing technique and that is exactly what I did.  I also used this weeks "The Sweet Stop" sketch challenge also.  I saw the sketch and knew that it would work well with what I planned on doing for this card.

So without further ado, here is my card!

As you can see I bordered the sentiment by tearing the paper.  The reason for this was because that is what the clean and simple challenge is, "to tear some paper!"  I also made the flowers by punching out a circle and cutting the circle in a spiral and then rolling it.  Here is a great video of how this is done!

Here is a close up of the flowers!

Are they not the cutest little roses!  I am loving making them.
