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)

He is not Here

Hello friends!  Another snowy morning here, so more time to stamp!  Today I grabbed some new stamps by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps to use for the current Freshly Made Sketch.

Creative Nugget:  I started by embossing the Scripture Cross with Platinum Embossing Powder on watercolor paper cut with a TE Stitched Rectangle Die.  Distress Oxide Inks were used for a light watercolor wash around the cross.  Texture was added using one of the stamps from the Texture Tiles 1 stamp set.  The flowers and leaves from the new Doodle Florals stamp set were also Platinum embossed on watercolor paper and watercolored with the Oxide Inks.  The flowers and leaves were fussy cut and popped onto the card using foam tape.  The little sentiment is from the Victory in Jesus stamp set and was also Platinum embossed.  Little gems were added to finish the card.
This card will be submitted for the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs,
Cathymac

What a beautiful card this is. Wow! I love the image you used and the soft wash of colors behind it. The flowers are gorgeous and I love the layer of texture you added behind the top panel. I'm not sure what it is, but it looks wonderful and perfectly placed.
Thanks for sharing this with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.
