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)

Happy Birthday, My Deer

Hello, friends!  Back with another challenge card for you! The WTUI Challenge on Splitcoaststampers was to use stripes so I planned a patriotic card in honor of our nation's upcoming birthday.  The challenge also included the use of a silhouette image which threw a monkey wrench into my plan! Fortunately I had just received the Deer Silhouette Greetings stamp set by North Coast Creations, a sister company of Our Daily Bread Designs.  I love this set!

Creative Nugget:  The white background panel was embossed with the Sunburst Background Die.  A Sparkling Star Die was used to cut a star from a piece of paper from the Patriotic Collection by Our Daily Bread Designs.  This panel was stitched to a piece of blue card stock.  Two of the Sparkling Star Dies were used to create a red frame for the star cut out, and another star cut from coordinating striped paper was embedded into the cut out. The deer silhouette scene was stamped in blue ink and the sentiment was cut from one of the Pennant Dies. Several pearls were added to finish the card.  This week's sketch from Freshly Made Sketches was used for the design of the card.

Here is the stamp set from North Coast Creations used to make this card…

…and other supplies available from
