SSIC91 As It Is...

I hope you are having a great weekend - don't they come around quickly and go even faster - they are the quickest 48 hours of the week.  With the weekend comes Sunday and we know that Sunday means it is time for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge....this week our hostess is the very talented Kristine - who has chosen:
"I know that whatever God does, it shall be forever. Nothing can be added to it, and nothing taken from it. God does it, that men should fear before Him."
Ecclesiastes 3:14

Kristine has also set a sketch as our challenge - we have been challenged to follow the sketch to a "T" - not adding anything to it, or taking anything away from it

I have used the Layers of Color Vintage Roses art stamp set

I have stamped the image twice, colouring it with Prismacolor Pencils using Gamsol, cutting one out and popping it up on foam tape.  The other has been cut out with a Spellbinders Grand Calibur using the Standard Circles - Lge  Nesitibilitie
