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)

Fancy Fritillary

Hello friends!  Don't you just love the look and smell of Spring…azaleas, lilacs, mowed lawn?  We have been enjoying some gorgeous weather here so it's starting to feel a lot more like spring.  The lilacs beginning to bloom next to the brick wall of our garage were the inspiration for my card which became Sketch 539 for today over at Splitcoaststampers!

Creative Nugget:  To create the background, Bundled Sage, Dusty Concord, and Seedless Preserves Distress inks were applied to a craft mat and spritzed with water.  A piece of Mixed Media paper was pulled through the inks.  Dusty Concord was applied to the back of a brick wall stencil, spritzed with more water and pressed on top and left to air dry.  More water was then spritzed through the stencil to remove some of the color on the bricks.  The rest of the card is pretty easy…the lilac paper is from the Blooming Garden Collection by Our Daily Bread Designs and the vine stamped on the brick wall and on the large circle is from the newly released Belles Vignes background stamp set.  The sentiment is from the Mini Tag Sentiments stamp set and other dies by Our Daily Bread Designs used on the card include the Flourished Star Pattern Die, Beautiful Borders Dies, Matting Circle Dies, Mini Tag Dies, and the beautiful new Fancy Fritillary Die.

This card will be submitted for the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by…hope you get to enjoy a little bit of Spring today!
