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 Are My Sunshine

Aloha, everyone!  Since the weather has been hot and steamy lately, it's off to the tropics with a card using this week's sketch on Splitcoaststampers and some of this month's stamps and dies from Our Daily Bread Designs.

Creative nugget:  Papers from the Boho Bolds and Cozy Quilt Collections were used on the card front.  Wild Honey Oxide Ink was sponged on the Sunburst Background and on the Double Stitched Circle panel.  Real stitching was added to the diagonal strip to carry through on the stitched element from the cut panels.  The Bird of Paradise from the Aloha stamp set from ODBD was colored with Copic Markers and cut with the coordinating Bird of Paradise Die.  A few Tropical Leaves and sequins were added to finish the card.

This card will be submitted for the following challenges:

Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #251 - Anything Goes
Fab 'n' Funky Challenge 360 - Use a patterned Paper
Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge 108 - Fabulous Flowers
Try It on Tuesday...18th July- Let It Shine
