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)

I had a lot of fun with this one!  Here is my card:

Our Daily Bread Designs, Faith, Apron & Tools Die Set

Creative Nugget:  I began by piecing 1 1/4" squares of patterned paper to a 5" square of card stock.  A zig-zag stitch was used to sew the pieces together after they had been tacked down.  The Apron & Tools Die set was used to cut the Apron.  The pockets and gardening tools were also cut with dies from the Apron & Tools Die set.  The pockets were embellished with piercing, seam binding, a button, and a mulberry rose...thanks, Sabrina!  Button twine was attached for the apron strings, and the apron popped onto layered DP and stitched to a Vintage Cream card base.  I found a little gardening tool in with my charms that I've had for years and had never used, so attached it to the corner of the card with some twine and seam binding.  The sentiment from the Faith stamp set was added to the large pocket to finish the card.

Here are the supplies from the Our Daily Bread Store used on this card:

My challenge team sisters have created gorgeous samples for your inspiration.  Be sure to check out their blogs and leave a little love behind...we enjoy hearing what you like about our creations!
