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)

90 Years Old!

Hello friends!  I have two cards to share today.  This month my uncle celebrated his 90th birthday.  Can you imagine all of the changes he has lived through?  He still loves the outdoors and golfing, and he and my aunt still make the long drive down to Florida several times a year.  


Creative Nugget:  The design for this card was taken from one of the Dare to Get Dirty challenges on Splitcoaststampers.  True Black card stock and paper from the Christmas 2015 Paper Collection was used for the card front.  Color Burst pigments were used to color mixed media card stock which was overstamped with the Wood Background stamp by ODBD and impressed with a wood pattern.  A Vintage Label Die and a Vintage Border Die were used to cut a recessed frame for the woodpecker from the new Woodpecker stamp set released by ODBD this month.  Copic Markers were used to color the woodpecker.  The sentiment was white embossed on a scrap of leftover wood stamped paper. Finally, the 90th was cut using the Numbers Dies, twine was tied around, and pearls added to finish the card.


My second card is a sample for the Sketch Challenge today on Splitcoaststampers.
Creative Nugget:  All of the papers and dies used are available from the Our Daily Bread Designs Store.  The papers used are from the Americana Quilt Collection and the Old Glory Paper Pad. Borders were cut using the Flower Lattice Die.  Pierced Rectangles Dies were used to cut all of the rectangular panels. The sentiment comes from the new Thanks for Everything Stamp/Die Duo.  Fancy Foliage Dies, Bitty Blossoms Dies, and Pretty Posies Dies were used to cut the floral accents. 

These cards will be submitted for the following challenges:
