PSC47 Anything Goes with Bugaboo Stamps

This week at The Perfect Sentiments we're using Bugaboo Stamps for a great Anything Goes With a Sentiment (on front), Challenge #47.  I had a lot of fun using their Thoughts and Prayers Block. There seems to be an endless number of people who are in my thoughts and prayers each day. When I retired I decided that I would be instant in prayer as soon as God brings someone to mind, otherwise, at retirement age I tend to forget! I probably need to pray about that, too!





I loved the design of the flowers in this digital stamp. I used the colors from the CR84FN challenge this week and the sketch from Crazy 4 Challenges. I printed the digital stamp two times and colored both. Then I cut the large flowers out and adhered them in the center with pop dots, but curled the loose edges slightly for a little dimension. For more dimension, I embossed the background, pleated the ribbon and added a pin and bling button.

 
 
I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:
 CR84FN Color Challenge #61 - Aqua, Tan, Cream
Shopping Our Stash Weekly #66 - Use your favorite thing - mine is embossing
 
I hope you'll  join our Perfect Sentiments Challenge Anything Goes with a Sentiment - CREATE ANY TYPE OF PAPER-CRAFTED ITEM YOU LIKE, FOR ANY OCCASION YOU LIKE.  Bugaboo Stamps is offering a great prize: 7 FREE IMAGES OR $21 VALUE.

Really awesome card! I love the sketch you used. The corner punch is one of my favs. The flowers turned out really good. The colors really go well with the background brown. Great job!

Great card. I like the fussy cut you did on the flower and the ripple in the ribbon adds alot to the card.

Beautifully created! Wonderful sentiment - I send cards to my mother so that she can reach out to others that God presses on her heart. I'm looking forward to retiring and doing this as well! Handmade cards and thoughts are certainly a blessing to others!
