SSIC Nostalgic For You

It is Sunday and who doesn't love Sunday!!  With it comes the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge - I love this challenge, it is inspiring on so many levels!!  This week our challenge is brought to us by Traci - who has chosen the following scripture:

 "Consider it a great joy, my brothers, whenever you experience various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance." James 1:2-3

Traci's challenge is to create a card with variegated colors. This can mean a monochromatic card with various shades of one color, or a card that shows variegated as in a variety of colors, or a pop of bright colors in unison as in a bouquet of flowers. Be creative!!

For my card I decided on using one main colour and a POP of brown - and not surprises that it is nostalgic - I did mention I am on a run of these...

I have used a free digital image from The Graphics Fairy, the sentiment is from Layers of Color.  I have used the Spellbinders Grand Calibur to cut the Spellbinders Lattice Rectangle, Labels Eight and the Ribbon Banners Die.

Lace, Hand Dyed Seam Binding and a Mulberry Flower are added along the lower portion of the card

to finish off a card with lots of dimension but not too much, that it is hard to post - you have to LOVE that!

This card is for the following challenges:
2 Sisters - Anything goes
Allsorts - Free and Easy February
Dies to Die for - Anything goes
Di's Digis Designs - Lace and Pearls
Just Some Lines - Girly Girls
Little Claire's  - Romance
Moving Along With The Times - Lots of layers (at least 2)

Make sure you stop by the Designers Blogs are some amazing inspiration - these ladies are inspirational on so many levels!!
