Stampin' Sisters in Christ #145

Happy Sunday!! It's time for this week's Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge

Hostess
Kris

Scripture
Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth." Psalm 46:10

Challenge
Use banners or flags in your creation - in your image, paper, etc. 

Sponsor
Kelly - donating a prize of stamps and goodies to one random winner

I kept this card pretty simple to focus on the flags and banners in the patterned paper I used. The paper is from the October Afternoon Farmhouse collection, I stamped the image, from Embrace Beauty by Taylored Expressions, in Memento Rich Cocoa and layered it on some shapes cut out with the Fleur de Lis Nestabilities. I stitched around the outer edge of the patterned paper and finished my card off with some Kraft ribbon and a flower. 



Be sure to check out the rest of the inspiration from these wonderful ladies! Thanks for stopping by!!
