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)

Here is my card made with His Peace:
Creative Nugget:  It has been a long week and I found my mojo waning until I saw the Color Challenge on Splitcoaststampers yesterday.  Melon Mambo, Old Olive, and Daffodil Delight are such pretty, bright colors, and hopefully they will bring cheer and encouragement to the recipient!  The sentiment was stamped on Solar Crest card stock with Olympia Green Versafine ink, cut with a Rectangle Nestie, and stitched to Daffodil Delight.  The card base was made from two Resplendent Rectangle Dies.  One was scored 1/2" from the top and sticky tape applied above the score line.  The other die was matched and adhered to make the card front.  The two little birds from Prim Blessings were colored with Copic Markers, cut out, and popped up under the sentiment along with a Cheery Lynn flourish and some punched flowers.  My favorite embellishment...pearls, were added to complete the card.

Here is my card made with Calms His Child:
Creative Nugget:  The sentiment was stamped on Vintage Cream card stock with Blue Lagoon Ink, cut with a Rectangle Nestie, and matted in Not Quite Navy.  Soft Sky card stock and old DP scraps were cut with the Wave Die and run through the Big Shot with the Swirls embossing Folder by ProvoCraft to create the stormy sea. Several Cloud Dies were stamped in Soft Sky ink using the Head in the Clouds stamp set.  The Raindrop Dies were given a coat of Star Dust Stickles and some twine was added to complete this monochromatic card.
