2014 Life Verse

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your path. Proverbs 3:5-6

Hello there.  I'm so glad to see that y'all are back to visit.  I hope you like what we have for y'all today.

This beautiful card was made using an image I received in a swap.  It's a beautiful sunflower, which is one of my most favorite flowers.  They are so bright, tall and sunny.  I love the seeds in my salads too.

I colored this beauty with my colored pencils and OMS.  I used a white gel pen to add some highlights to the leaves and flower when I finished coloring.  

To put this card together, I started with a standard A2 size card base made from SU Chocolate Chip card stock.  The patterned paper I used is from Gina K Designs Wisteria Lane collection.  I cut it to 4"x5.25" and adhered it to the card base.  The next layer is Very Vanilla from SU and is cut to 3.75"x4.75".  The next layer is Burnt Orange from Colorbok.  It's cut at 3.50"x4.50".  The image itself is cut to 3.25"x4.25".  Before adhering them all together, I cut a slit into the image layer just big enough to slide the ribbon through.  I tucked it around behind the image and wrapped it around the burnt orange layer and the vanilla layer and pulled it around to the front.  I adhered the image layer onto the other two and onto the card.  I tied the bow to finish off the card.

I am so happy y'all chose to take a stop in today.  I hope you liked the card.  Have a wonderful day and God bless y'all.
