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)

Life is a Gift

Hello friends!  Life truly is a gift and I thank the Lord for every day that He gives me to live it and for every undeserved blessing He bestows!  My card today is for Linda's Monochromatic Challenge on Splitcoaststampers and uses the MOJO Monday Sketch for this week and two new stamp sets released this month by Our Daily Bread Designs.

Creative Nugget:  The card front was made by stamping the Wildflower Silhouette Background with Hello Honey ink, cutting the panel with the large frame die in the Flourished Star Pattern Die Set, and matting it with Smokey Shadow card stock.  Vellum was embossed with the Faithful Fish Pattern Die and stitched across the middle of the card front.  The main panel was stamped with the Life is a Gift image in Crushed Curry ink then offset and stamped again in Daffodil Delight.  The wheat was brushed with clear Wink of Stella and white gel pen dots were added to the Queen Anne's Lace.  This panel was also embossed with the Faithful Fish Pattern Die.  The Smokey Shadow banner was stitched on the side.  The sentiment was white embossed on vellum, punched with a circle punch and framed with Daffodil Delight card stock.  Some dyed ribbon was added to finish the card.

Here are the supplies from the
