SSIC Planned Out

Sunday comes around so quickly - and with it come the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge- one of my favourite things about Sunday!

This week our hostess is the lovely MariLynn, who has chosen

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
 Jeremiah 29:11 New International Version (NIV)

MariLynn's challenge is to make a project that follows this PLAN: (at least) 1 circle or oval element, (at least) 2 different papers, and (at least) 1 embellishment.

I have used the Spellbinders Lace Motifs Shapeabilities as my circle/oval,  in yellow patterned paper and a Spellbinders Wings of Hope butterfly in white.  My background paper is embossed using the Spellbinders Elegance M-Bossabilites.  All Dies have been cut using the Grand Calibur Die Cutting Machine.

My embellishments are the pearl, Seam Binding and the Mulberry Flower.

  5. Linda, I simply must call this a 'yummy' card! For some reason it reminds me of a banana split! =) And now I'm off to play with the lattice feature on my new toy, a Sizzix eclips. You've inspired me again! =)
