SSIC LOC Spring Garden

Are you ready for this week's Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge  it is brought to us by our very own ray of sunshine- Peggysue

 And Moses said unto Pharaoh, Glory over me: when shall I entreat for thee, and for thy servants, and for thy people, to destroy the frogs from thee and thy houses, that they may remain in the river only?
 And he said, Tomorrow. And he said, Be it according to thy word: that thou mayest know that there is none like unto the LORD our God.
And the frogs shall depart from thee and from thy houses, and from thy servants, and from thy people; they shall remain in the river only.  Exodus 8:9-11

Peggysue has challenged us to use green on our projects.

I have used the Layers of Color Merci Bouquet and Flutterescent art stamp sets.

The image has been coloured with SU Chalks and a Blender Pen, cut out with the Labels 4 Nestibilitie and layered onto some green card stock cut out with the next size up labels 2 Die using my Grand Calibur


The DP is embossed with the Floral Fantasy Embossing Folder - I love the dimension that embossing gives DP.

This card is for the following challenges:
2 Sisters - Embossing
Crazy4Challenges - Use Dies
Creative Inspirations - Distress - I distressed with ink
Little Claires - Anything Goes
Guylous Imitibility - Anything Goes
Res-Q-Challenge - Something that Makes You Happy - Butterflies
4 Crafty Chicks - Fairy/Angel/Butterfly
Shelly's Images - Show Us What You Got
My Grafico - Anything Goes
ScrapCreations - Spring Fever
Allsorts - Inspired by Nature
Mami Dooddles - Flower Card
Digi Doodle Shop's Best - Anything Goes

Please pop back over to the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge Blog to share Peggysue's inspiration from this weeks scripture. 

 Sadly our dear Patti J Gilliam has stepped down from the design team to focus on personal demands. We will miss her dearly but know that we all have lives outside stamping and these need our attention at times.  Thank you, Patti, for being such a blessing to the Team and the players - you will be missed but are always our Sister in Christ!

 Make sure you stop by the Design Team Blogs and see that gorgeous 'works of the heart' they have created for you!!
