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)

Scrap Art

Hello friends and Happy Good Friday!  Does any one else toss those leftover pieces of designer paper into a scrap box?  I have a box filled with pieces left over from previous projects along with frames and die cuts that never quite made it on the original card.  As I was looking through the box, I pulled out a frame and a few matching springy looking yellow pieces, cut them into strips, and started weaving them into a background.  

Creative Nugget:  A distress ink color wash was applied to a piece of mixed media paper which was embossed with a burlap texture plate...this was mostly covered up with the paper weaving.  The frame was popped on top of the woven paper strips.  The sentiment is from the Timeless Hymns stamp set released by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps this month and was white embossed on a black strip.  The flowers from Whimsy Bouquet were stamped onto mixed media paper colored with Distress Oxide inks, fussy cut, and popped onto the card.  Some texture was added with one of the stamps in the Texture Tiles 1 stamp set.  A few enamel dots were applied to the flower centers to finish this scrappy card.

This card will be submitted for the following challenges:

CAS-ual Friday Challenge #196 - Spring Fever
Aud Sentiments Challenge #200 - Easter or Spring Sentiment

Because He lives I can Face Tomorrow!

Hugs,
