Sunday comes around so quickly and with Sunday comes the most inspirational Challenge of them all - The Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge.  This weeks hostess is the lovely Miesje, who has chosen the following scripture:

But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God's unfailing love for ever and ever. Psalm 52:8

Miesje has challenged us to have an image of a tree on your card or project.

I have used this gorgeous image from the Sweet Days of Summer stamp set by Flourishes llc.  I love silhouette images and this set is stunning.
I have used Spellbinders Marvelous Squares Nestabilities - I love this set, it makes a card so pretty instantly - the Dies have been cut using theSpellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine.  My gorgeous pearl bling is from Want2Scrap  and the flowers are from my stash.
This card is for the following challenges:
