Serve The Lord

This weeks challenge over at Our Daily Bread Designs blog is to use flowers on your card.  It can be a stamp set, paper ribbon, whatever just use flowers.  It is Kelley's 4th year anniversary for Our Daily Bread Designs Stamps.  Congratulations Kelley! 

So as you can see on my card, I used the stamp set from ODBD called Serve the Lord and the ODBD Crocheted Circle Die which actually goes with the stamp set.  So you can see it is cut out perfectly and the stamped image has flowers.  How easy is that?

Also, I had some boutonniere pins left from my daughter's wedding last May, and they had a pearl on the end.  So I added other pearls to the pin and then used it as a stick pin on this card!  One of my dear friends from Our Daily Bread Designs Forum (Christian Paper Crafts), Sabrina sent me this flower ribbon which I love so I cut one of the flowers off and attached to the top of the ruffled ribbon as they were a perfect match.  I just love those flowers and will have to find out where they came from.  Help Sabrina!!!!

Here is a side view of this card!

And of course had to show a close up of the flowers!

I used my water color pencils and my wisteria wonder marker for coloring the flowers and lucky limeade and old olive for the stems and greenery.  I then spritzed everything with the Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz.  Beautiful shimmer in person. 

And of course don't forget the inside!

The scripture on the top is a little crooked, but hopefully the recipient will not notice! LOL
