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)

Friends - DD Color Challenge

Happy Saturday, everyone!  I actually have two friendship cards to share with you today...the first was created for the Divinity Designs Color Combo Challenge. This month we are using colors inspired by papers from the Fall Favorites Paper Pad...just a little reminder that summer is coming to an end and Fall is on its way.

I decided to use the Forever Friends stamp set for my sample...I just love these cone flowers in fall colors!

Creative Nugget:  The new Z Fold Card with Layers Dies were used to create the base  of the card and some of the layers were cut with papers from the Follow the Son Paper Pad which coordinate with the Fall Favorites pad.  The sentiment peeking out from the second fold was embossed on and layered to circles cut with the Circles and Filigree Circles Dies.

The card opens to reveal a whole field of coneflowers which were masked and stamped repeatedly across all of the panels and colored with Copic Markers.  The new Farm Fence Die was used for the fencing and the sentiment was stamped on a banner cut with one of the Treat Tags Dies.

For my second card we head down to the farm!

Creative Nugget:  The blue and green papers from the Boho Bolds Paper Pad were cut with the Sunburst Background Die and the Grass Hill Die to form the background for the farm scene. The animals are all from the Farm Friends Stamp/Die Duo and were colored with Copic Markers.  Other dies used to create the scene include the Barn, Farm FencePierced Circles and Fancy Circles dies.

By making a little T cut with a craft knife around the barn doors, they fold open to reveal a white embossed sentiment inside...along with two more farm friends!  The sentiments are from the Hogs & Kisses stamp set.

These cards will be submitted for the following challenges:
Thanks so much for stopping by.  Be sure to hop on over to the Divinity Designs Blog to check out the other Color Challenge projects created by the Divinity Divas!

Have a wonderful weekend!
