The Joy Of The Lord













I created this card for Taylor's Sketch TESC92 and for the Embellish Color Challenge, the colors are red, yellow, blue, green, and to use brads. I used these wonderful chipboard flowers from Hope Stamps Eternal, they are EK Success Art Blanche. They have a white base which makes it so easy to cover and use....I luv these, I will be picking up some more. I lightly sanded the sides and added silver beads, I didn't use brads on the chipboard. I used the SU Embosslit sweetest stem die for the leaves. I stamped the sentiment unto the petals of one of the flowers. I embossed the two side panels using the Victoria embossing folder. I hope my creation inspires you and that you enjoy your evening!
I was thinking how great it would be to start a family tradition this Thanksgiving, especially if you don't have one. My thoughts where to have everyone in your family make a list of five things they are thankful for and share them together this Thanksgiving meal. It's is important to keep heritage in our families and this is a simple way to hear each others heart.

  5. This is so pretty Teresa! I love the little vines. I got my chipboard clipboard (circular one) at Archivers in the 1.99 bin of all places! It was fun and easy to make.

    What a great card. I just love the bold, brightly coloured flowers and you chose such a great sentiment. You've got me humming a worship song now that contains that line...and for that, I have to say thank you!
