Birthday Bloom: Matthew 27:51

Happy Sunday dear friends. We are always amazed at how quickly Sunday rolls around, I suppose that is the case for every day but Sundays are special especially over at Stampin' Sisters in Christ!

Our dear Peggysue is the challenge hostess this week and she chose another verse from Matthew 27:51. Yes, we do seem to be focusing on the book of Matthew lately don't we? Be sure to read her devotion for this week over on SSIC, you won't regret it!
"The veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom."
I made this card using one of the sponsor for this week's stamps. I have a lot of birthdays in my family and I like having some made in advance. This one can be for male or female. I paper pieced the image using some patterned paper from BG. Then just tore some vellum after stamping the SU sentiment on it. I sponged a little around the edges and added a couple of buttons to it.

The challenge this week is; use torn paper technique (just tear paper with your fingers and use it somehow on your card, but it must be torn, not cut)

This week our sponsor is Inspired Stamps. Be sure to stop and browse the wonderful stamps. The flower image on my card is one of theirs.

Don't forget to stop by my SSIC design sisters (listed on the sidebar) to see what they have to share this week.
It is always great to see you, thanks for the comments and have a wonderful week surrounded with God's love.
