SSIC Bliss

Happy Sunday everyone - I hope your weekend has been a relaxing one!!  I love Sundays for so many reasons and one of them is because it is time for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge - this weeks challenge is hosted by our dear Sistah Kristine

"They put a purple robe on him, then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on him." MAIN VERSE: Mark 15:17
 CONTEXT PASSAGE: See Mark 15: 16-20

Kristine has challenges us to use shades of purple as your main color AND/OR use wood paper or elements on your card.

It was time I inked up this fabulous set from Stampin Up, I was given as a gift for my birthday - so delish!  I have used Tsukineko Imperial Purple on the flourish and Spanish Moss for the butterfly - such great tones in these inks 

The background DP is embossed with the Stylised Flowers Embossing Folder and the green card stock with the Victoria EF - I love the added depth embossing adds - and of course the gorgeous lace - part of a RAK from my dear friend and SU Demo Ann

You can see the added layers and dimension here.  I have used the Spellbinders Grand Calibur for cutting the Labels 4 and Classic Oval Nestibilities - where were we before we discovered Spellbinders - I love how their Die Cuts add instant 'gorgeousness' - in my opinion!  LOL!

A  BIG THANK YOU to this week's sponsor Simon Says Stamp who has offered the "Why Do Birds Fall in Love" Stamp set - we appreciate their ongoing support!!
