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)

Hello friends…just a very quick post today!  I'm hosting Sketch Challenge 478 today on Splitcoaststampers and thought I'd share my card here as well.  I grabbed the new Zinnia set just released by Our Daily Bread Designs and went with a neutral design for my sample.

Creative Nugget: The top panel was stained with some Antique Linen Distress Ink to give it an aged look.  The large zinnia was stamped lightly with Brushed Corduroy and the small zinnia was over stamped with the same ink full strength.  The leaves and the bee were die cut with the Zinnia & Leaves Dies and the little bee was colored with Copic Markers and given some shimmer with a Clear Wink of Stella marker. The sentiment from the Zinnia Set was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black Ink.    This panel was stitched to True Black card stock and some twine and a seam binding bow was added before mounting to paper from the Blooming Garden Paper Collection.  All layers were mounted to a True Black card base and a rhinestone sticker was added to the zinnia to finish the card.

These supplies from Our Daily Bread Designs were used to make this card: 

This card will be entered into the following challenges:
Word Art Wednesday - Challenge #122 (Anything Goes)
Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge - SC178

Thanks so much for stopping by!
