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)

You Make Me Smile!

Hello friends!  It's a little rainy and dreary today so I thought I'd share a little sunshine.  The smile in the new You Bless Me So Stamp & Die Duo set released by Our Daily Bread Designs this month was ideal for creating a happy card that fit several challenges.
Creative Nugget: Distress Inks were sponged through a stencil to make a space for the focal smile.  Layers of paper from the Birthday Brights Paper Collection were used for the border and for the word die.  Our Daily Bread Designs Custom Pierced Circles Die, Beautiful Borders Die, and Flourished Star Pattern Dies were used to cut many of the elements.  Some stitching, Glimmer Glaze, Metallic Thread, and rhinestones were used to finish the card.   There is a lot of shimmer on the card but it doesn't show very well on the photo.  Tuesday Morning Sketch #357 was used for the design.

This card will be submitted for the following challenges:
Splitcoaststampers Ways to Use It #589 - Are You Four It?
Tuesday Morning Sketches # 357
Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #199 - CAS
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Add Some Shimmer
Crafty Girls Creations Challenge #21 - Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Help make someone's day by giving one of your smiles!
