And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Here is my card for this week's sketch:

Creative Nugget:  I knew I wanted to use a scripture verse for the circle element on the sketch and ended up with this verse from Psalms from the Scripture Collection 2 stamp set.  It was stamped in Smokey Shadow ink, cut with a circle Nestie and mounted on a Lacey Circle.  The butterfly and chickory flowers from the Don't Worry stamp set were colored with Copic Markers and fussy cut to frame the verse along with a Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish die. An extra pair of  wings were colored, cut, and popped on top of the butterfly for dimension.  The banner element was hand cut, and the patterned papers stitched to Smokey Shadow card stock and mounted on a Vintage Cream card base.  A bow and a few pearls colored with a Copic Marker were added to finish the card.

The Stamp sets from Our Daily Bread Designs used to create this card are Scripture Collection 2 and Don't Worry!

Please take time to visit the super talented Sister Sticks for more wonderful inspiration!  I hope you will be able to play along with us this week.
