ODBD Seasons

Good morning - it is Saturday morning here for me and I am hoping to have a highly productive day, but before I 'get my craft on' I am wanting to share a quick card with you.
I needed some 'Religious' cards for the shop - that categories always makes me smile - religious really just applies to something we go 'religiously' like, cleaning our teeth - just sayin'!  I do love to create 'faith based' cards and am happy they sell well at this store too. 
I naturally reached for my Our Daily Bread Designs Scripture Collection 1 and my Spellbinders Paper Arts Dies - I have used the Parisian Motifs Shapeabilities® to cut out this sentiment, using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur.  I used the Die as a mask, sponging around the center before removing the card from it - I love this technique, it gives the illusion of another layer without adding the 'bulk'.  Makes it so much easier and less expensive for posting to someone - something I try to consider...but as someone who loves layering.....I am not always successful with this! LOL!
and added a few embellishments I had sitting on my desk - an adorable butterfly that was part of a RAK, lace and a gorgeous little flower from the Craft Queen.
Coming together very quickly, which is just as well as this month our local corner store where I sell my cards, sold 60 cards - no time for procrastinating here! LOL!
This card is for the following challenges:
