SSIC LOC Small Wonders

Sunday comes around quickly doesn't it - but who doesn't love Sunday - it is our day of rest and also the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge - what a sweet place to meet with so many of you!

This weeks Challenge is brought to us by our lovely Peggysue, who has chosen the following scripture:

"But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, Though you are little among the thousands of Judah, Yet out of you shall come forth to Me the One to be Ruler in Israel, whose goings forth are from of old, from everlasting,"   NKJV Micah 5:2

Peggysue has challenged us to make a card using inchies - I had these gorgeous butterflies from the Layers of Colour Butterfly Collector art stamp set already stamped, so punched them out with a SU Square punch - they are perfect for this challenge!

The background flocked DP is actually wallpaper - isn't it fabulous stuff - some inking with Tsukineko Versafine in Spanish Moss and it is ready 'to go!'

I added some lavendar rose and lace - finishing off with some Kaiser pearls.

This card is for the following Challenges:
Craft Your Days Away - Punch It Out
One Stitch at a Time - Anything Goes
Crafty Emma - Anything Goes
Creative Card Crew - Anything Goes
Sugar Sweet Paper Treats - Anything Goes
Order of the Opus Gleui - Show Anything You have Made
