Twist of Faith Card Challenge #34 - Sketch Challenge

The challenge this week at Twist of Faith is to make a card using this sketch:

Feel free to stretch it, flip it, as you see fit, as long as your end creation layout resembles this original basic sketch... (the text used is only to identify the sketch!) And of course you're free to use an embellishments you wish! Have fun!
Your creation should also include a scripture,
uplifting verse or positive words/quote

 We are happy to welcome back our sponsor ... the fabulous Bugaboo Stamps!  This week our challenge prize for our random winner is a wonderful prize of SEVEN DIGITAL IMAGES... winner's choice!  I used their image "Block - For You From Me Flower" for my card:

It has been dark and cloudy here for too many days. When I took my photo, the limited lighting washed out the color of the yellow. It's actually a bright, sunny yellow. I used a border embossing folder on my card. Since only half of the design showed up on the top section of embossing, I placed the bottom of the card into the folder halfway. The Bugaboo image was colored with Copics, mixing a light Blue Violet with a Blue so that they resemble the hydrangeas that grow on the north side of my house. The verse is a beautiful blessing in Our Daily Bread Designs "Happy Birthday" stamp set. The patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye's "Totally Girl." The black cardstock mat for the image was die cut using Spellbinders Nestabilities Lattice Rectangles. Since my image was square, it gave me room to add some glittery white hydrangea blossoms.
Thank you for visiting. I'd love to see your artwork using this fun sketch.
