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)

Red & White for the Red Cross

Hello friends!  Clara Barton and a few associates founded the Red Cross 134 years ago today.  In honor of the Red Cross, The Ways To Use It Challenge today at Splitcoaststampers is to create a card using red & white.  Here is my card:

Creative Nugget:  All stamps and dies used on this card are from Our Daily Bread Designs.  The Daisy Chain Background Die was used to emboss some texture on the background layer which was matted with Pure Poppy Card stock and mounted to a Neenah Solar Crest card base.  Next, the Gingham Background was stamped with Pure Poppy ink.  The Layered Lacey Squares Die was cut for the sentiment and sponged while the label was still in the die.  The sentiment is from the new Spread Your Wings stamp set.  The little ladies from the Butterfly & Bugs mini stamp set were colored with Copic Markers and cut with the coordinating Butterfly & Bugs Dies.  Six layers of Asters & Leaves die cuts were used to form the flower and red seed beads were added to the middle of the flower.  A Fence border and several Pennants were added to follow Sweet Sunday Sketch 269 for this week.

This card will be submitted for the following challenges:
Splitcoaststampers - WT532
Word Art Wednesday #184 - Anything Goes Family Friendly

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day…let God lift you up!

What a beautiful and adorable card, Cathy! Just love the ladybugs and the gingham, and I love your red and white challenge this week! It's perfect. Having grown up in New Jersey, I am quite familiar with Clara Barton, and there are many schools and other places named after her. What a blessing that God used her to start the Red Cross so many years ago and still see the impact of her legacy. Hugs!
