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, Korin!

My sweet friend Korin, owner of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, celebrated her birthday yesterday.  This card was created for her!

Creative Nugget:  Diluted Oxide inks were used to add a wash of color to the corner of the card.  This was over stamped with Leafy Flourish and Typewriter Text backgrounds and splattered with some black acrylic paint.  Strips of Washi tape were adhered to the card front off center.  The Majestic Monarch butterfly was embossed over strips of the same Washi tape and cut with the coordinating Monarch Die.  The sentiment from the Keep in Touch, Too set was stamped on a banner and added to the card. Tiny Sparkles, metallic threads and twine were added to finish the card.  All of the stamps used are available at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.

This card will be submitted for the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Looks like a crafty day today...rain, rain, rain!
