Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge #140

If you're looking for my Christmas Card Challenges post, please scroll down a bit. Thanks! :)

Traci is our hostess this week.

"Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers."
Ephesians 4:29

Build up your card by adding layers, paper-piecing, using stacked flowers, etc. 

Tami Mayberry - One lucky winner will win a stamp set. Thanks, Tami!

I had a lot of fun making this card! I just kept layering it up! I used the A Happy Heart paper pad by My Mind's Eye. It was one I hadn't used in a long time, so I decided to pull it out from the back of my stash. I followed an older Verve sketch I found on Pinterest. The stamp is from Sentimental Thank You by There She that set!! I sponged around it with Memento Cantaloupe to help it match the patterned paper and accented it with a blingy circle. I finished off my card with some Papertrey Ink ribbon and a Wild Orchid Crafts flower. 

Other Challenges I Used:
Friday Mashup #59 - ribbons and bows
Truly Scrumptious #80 - anything goes
Creative Card Crew #10 - sentiment as focal point
