SSIC LOC Happy Anniversary

This weeks Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge is brought to us by Peggysue

The scripture she has chosen is:
"Make it your aim to live a quiet life, to mind your own business, and to earn your own living, just as we told you before.12 In this way you will win the respect of those who are not believers, and you will not have to depend on anyone for what you need."
1 Thessalonians 4:11-12
Peggysue has challenged us to use nothing bright. Use 'quiet' colors in your creation, either pastels, or low key earthtones, soft, muted shades of beige or neutrals.

I have used the Layers of Color Gifts of Love art stamp set illustrated by Nina Brackett. 
 Along with the Spellbinders Lacey Circle and Standard Circle Lge Nestibilities, these have been cut out with the wonderful Grand Calibur.  For the sentiment I have used Fancy Tags One.  My background DP is wallpaper - isnt it divine - I would LOVE an embossing folder like this.

This card is for the following challenges:
Catch The Bug - September Anythings Goes
Designed 2 Delight - Wedding or Anniversary
Little Claire's - Wedding/Anniversary
Sweet Stampin - Anything but Birthday
Alphabet Challenge - P is for Pretty Pastels
Cuddly Buddly - vintage, distressing, flowers
Fun with Shapes & More - what you want (anything goes)
