COF Mini May Challenge

Happy Friday everyone!  The sun is shining and the weekend looks lovely!  I took some time to stamp this morning and I am pleased with the result.  This card is for the mini challenge with the Crafter's of Faith group that I belong to.  This is a close knit group of believing girls who share their craft and pray for one another.  We are spread out all over the country and in Canada. It is a blessing to know there are gals who I can share with and KNOW they are praying when there is a need!

This week our awesome leader, Kelly asked us to create a card using green/yellow'purple and have something floral.  I found this image in my file of already stamped images.  I enjoyed coloring it, using koh-i-noor pencils and blending with mineral spirits.  I have much better results when I use this medium, rather than Copic markers, don't know why I stress myself......;o). Card base and DSP are from Stampin' Up!  Flowers brads are from JoAnn's (LOVE that place!!) I used nesties to cut the oval and scallop oval, then used my Scor Pal along the bottom.  Don't know if the picture lets you see this, the grass is hiding it a bit. 

Be sure to check out the creations of the others ladies, you will find the links to their sites on my sidebar.  You will be blessed by their work and by the sweet spirit of each of them. 

Have a blessed day and hug your Momma this weekend!!
