Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge #156

Hostess
Jerusha

Scripture
"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus."
Romans 3: 23-24

Challenge
Use only bright colors. 

Sponsor
The Craft's Meow is offering a stamp set of the winner's choice!

I decided to keep my card very clean and simple. I'm just going to go ahead and keep-it-real here and tell you why. My craft room is normally extremely organized and clean. However, I did not clean up the other night after I made a card, and my desk looked like Hurricane Isaac decided to come back and wreak havoc on my craft room. So because things were such a mess, I decided to go clean and simple. Like I said, just keeping it real, folks! I used to be afraid of clean and simple, but we're slowly becoming friends. 

I used some Papertrey Ink Harvest Gold cardstock and rounded the corners. I used a sentiment from the Papertrey Ink Signature Greetings stamp set. I cut out scalloped pieces from the Echo Park Hello Summer paper using the MFT Jumbo Scallops Border Die-namics. I finished my card off with some ribbon and rhinestones. I love how this turned out!
