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)

Scoring at the Beach

Hello friends!  Since it's a little dreary here this morning, I thought I would try to get in a quick card before starting my errands for the day!  Naturally, I checked out several challenges to jump start my creativity.  Here's what I came up with:

Creative Nugget:  Sponging inside a circle mask was used to create the background for this tropical scene.  The island image from one of my favorite Sweet 'n Sassy stamp sets, Landscape Silhouettes, was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black.  Piercing around the circle helps to define it.  A few shells from Beauty by the Sea were colored with Copic Markers and covered with a thin coating of Glossy Accents.  They were then fussy cut and popped onto the card.  Some scoring was done…since that was one of the challenges…and pearls and a sentiment banner were added to finish the card!  This card was easy enough to make, so it will be reproduced and given to my VBS craft team, which was such a blessing to me last week during our church's VBS!

This card was created for the following challenges:
