SSIC MFT Pure Innocence

For my Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge today I have the privilege of using an image from our sponsor, from the My Favourite Things Pure Innocence Images, but before I get too carried away, today's challenge is being hosted by my dear friend and Stampin' Sistah, the aptly named Grace.

 "The tongue of the righteous is as choice silver, the heart of the wicked is worth little. The lips of the righteous feed many, but fools die for lack of understanding."
  Proverbs 10:20-21

Grace has challenged us to create a card/ project that encourages and use a touch of silver.

I have used the Blooming Good Day image

and added a daisy, some leaves, pearl and seam binding bow.

A punched butterfly (thanks Gunn)

and finishing off with a punched Picket Fence - using the Martha Stewart punch.

This card is for the following challenges:
Sweet Stampin' - In the Garden and/or Sketch 
Crafts for Eternity Recipe Challenge - Flower, Ribbon, Bling
Delicious Doodles - Let the Sunshine
Fairy Knoll - Flowers
Stamp Something - Something with Beachy Colours
CCEE Stampers - Flowers
Stampin B's - Make a Spring Scene Card
Crafty Creations - Flowers, Patterned DP and Ribbon 
Creative Card Crew - Cute and Girly
Penny's Paper Crafty - Anything Goes

A BIG thank you to our sponsor this week

  11. Linda, I miss you so much. I still keep up with a lot of your creations; but, like you, for different reasons, there just doesn't seem to be enough time to comment on everything. Your spring card is so adorable and so full of all the details I so love about you and your art. Missin' you #2 favorite of Priscilla. Just kidding - I'm sure I'm not even on the list any more. I miss the MM challenges, but haven't been able to get back into them as I spend a lot of time on them and have had very little of that. But, I shall return, so watch out!! Hugs 4-evah!
