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)

For my sample I used the new Roses stamp set!

Here is a peek at the new Roses Stamp Set!

Creative Nugget:  The Roses were stamped and colored with Copic Markers before cutting them with the Gold Labels Four Die and mounting them to Barely Banana and Smokey Gray Labels Four dies.  The roses were then stamped again two more times on a matching piece of designer paper, colored, and hand cut to mount them on the bottom layer for some 3-D dimension.  The sentiment was stamped once on Vintage Cream card stock and once on matching DP.  Two of the words were cut from the DP sentiment and attached to the other one.  This was mounted on a Barely Banana panel and a Decorative Labels Twenty-Seven Die.  KaiserCraft DP was stitched to Smokey Gray card stock and attached to a Vintage Cream card base.  A corner was cut from the Quatrefoil Pattern Die and attached along with some seam binding.  Pearls and a bow were added to finish the card!

Be sure to check out more fabulous creations made for your pleasure by the Coasters Design Team!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a fabulous day!
