Praise God - Romans 8:28

Another Sunday and so glad that you could join us for another challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ.

This card was made without me reading the full directions! The challenge was to not use designer paper and my brain just thought of background. Silly me! But I liked the card so I decided to post it anyway and then make a second card that DOES follow the directions!

I made this card using ODBD stamps and stamped the tulips right on the DP. I stamped it several times and then popped up a few of the petals. I used two different Cuttlebug folders on the ivory paper. I loved that I had ribbon to match too!

Our Daily Bread Designs: Sketch
Fabulous Friday - Stripes and polka dots
Simon Says Stamps: Anything Goes

And then I made this one to correct my error!

This card was quickly tossed together to show that I do know how to make a card without DP. LOL! I used another Cuttlebug folder to create the background using some of my distress inks, Bundles Sage and Victorian Velvet. I used the emboss resist technique for the flower image from ODBD. The sentiment was from an old stamps set from Sweet and Sassy Stamps. I threw a few tiny beads on the center of the flower. I know that it looks like the ink colors are different on the two white sections but it was the late afternoon light. I threw a hat pin on it for a fun addition.

This week  MariLynn chose the verse for this week's challenge. The verse she chose is Romans 8:28.

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
Right now one of our daughters is going through a difficult time and has some changes coming in her life. I know that she is totally in God's hands and that things will turn out okay for her. She is very much loved and very special to our Father! She is mentally challenged and does have total trust that everything will be okay. She trusts us and the people that are involved in her life totally. That is the trust that  we all must strive for.

The challenge this week is to use no designer paper, paper must start as a solid color.

Our sponsor this week is Clear Dollar Stamps with a cling stamp set.

I am so glad you shared both of them, I like the paper pieced flowers, but the second card is gorgeous! Isn't it funny, that so often turns out to be the case, the one you say you 'threw together' is my favorite. And the ribbon is a great find, it is a great match!
