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)

New Beginnings

Hello friends!  If you are like me, you've managed to hoard quite a lot of crafty stuff in 2015 (in addition to all the other stuff from past years).  My plan is to rid my craft room of this stuff during the new year and Toni's "Ways to Use It" Challenge on Splitcoaststampers gave me the opportunity to begin working on my goal.  The challenge is to use a lot of stuff on your card, so here it is…

Creative Nugget:  This old My Mind's Eye DP from my stash had a lot of butterflies, so I began with that.  The Leafy Flourish Background stamp from SNSS was clear embossed over the butterflies.  The circle element was sponged and stamped with images from the Nature Silhouettes and Nature Silhouettes 2 stamp sets, also by SNSS.  The butterflies were die cut and stamped along with the sentiment from the New Beginnings stamp set.  The design for my card came from this week's Mojo Monday sketch.
Here are the stamp sets used in the card above:

This card will be submitted to the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by!
