SSIC LOC Peacefully Pieced

The Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge this week is hosted today by the wonderful Lisa. who has chosen a scripture from the book of Philippians,

 Philippians 4:6-7 "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

Lisa's challenge is  about a different kind of peace... piece... as in paper piecing. Use paper piecing in the main image of your card/project

I have stamped the Layers of Color Cottage Rose cling art stamp into green DP and cut around it, restamping it onto some Kraft DP and paper piecing the flower onto the stamped image.

I have also added the Brick Wall cling art stamp to the edges - this stamp is so versatile and perfect for cards or layouts - and how much do you love that divine lace - it was sent to me by a special friend and I just ADORE it - and am using it sparingly - can you blame me! 
This card is for the following Challenges:
Paper Play - Distressing (I used ink)
