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)

Fruitful Blessings

Hello again, friends!  I just love a good sketch challenge...half of your planning is already done for you and it's a great source of inspiration.  This week Our Daily Bread Designs has a fabulous Shining the Light sketch challenge, so I decided to play along!

Creative Nugget:  I have been enjoying the new garden stamp sets released by ODBD this month.  For this card, the fruit baskets from the Garden Mini set were colored with Copic Markers, cut with a Classic Circle Nestie, and mounted on a Smokey Shadow Scalloped Circle after the piercing was done.  For the background, several of the Fancy Foliage flourishes were mounted to a Solar Crest panel and embedded with a Canvas Impression Plate...love this technique.  The Mint Julep DP by Webster's Pages was stitched to Smokey Shadow following the sketch.  Some seam binding was tied around the card front and some Fancy Foliage vines were added as accents.  The sentiment is from the Strawberries stamp set and was stamped directly on the DP.  I hope this card will be an encouragement to just the right person!

Here is the sketch and the materials from the 


Thanks so much for stopping by...Have a wonderful day!

Hugs,

Cathy, I just LOVE this card...it's such a great take on the sketch this week! Your colors are beautiful, along with how you've used the new Fancy Foliage dies! And those sweet little baskets of fruit are beautifully colored...with the finishing touch being the wonderful Scripture verse. So glad you joined in this week! Hugs!
