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)

Birthday Collage

Hello friends!  Hope you all had a very merry Christmas!  It is my wish that the spirit of Christmas lives on throughout the new year.  After all…once we know the Savior, He changes our lives and leads us each and every day.

One of the first celebrations of the new year for my family is the birthday of my DH and his twin brother the day after New Year's.  I found inspiration for my brother-in-law's birthday card in the gallery of Nancy Stislow (Stiz2003), who always encourages me with her sweet comments on Splitcoaststampers.  So my card for today is a CASE of THIS ONE made by Nancy.

Creative Nugget:  Seedless Preserves, Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers Distress inks were smeared on a craft sheet and spritzed with water.  These colors were smeared on a piece of mixed media paper and spritzed some more to create the background for my collage card.   Out came lots of Our Daily Bread Designs stamp sets to add to the collage…Admit Three, one of the new sets released in December, God's Timing, Time, Faithful Friend (Retired), Ornate Borders and Flowers, Bee Happy, Lattice Chalkboard Background, and Grunge Butterfly.  The dragonfly image was stamped again, coated with Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents, and popped up for dimension.  This panel was stitched to True Black card stock and adhered to a black mat and a Neenah Solar Crest card base.  Some black metallic thread was strung through the eyelets from which two charms cut with the new Mini Tags Dies were hung.  The sentiment was stamped along the side and a few splatters of acrylic paint finish the card.  Hope my BIL likes his card!

This card is entered in the following challenges:
