The Creation!!!

Good morning everyone!!!. As you may know, I belong to a Faith based group at SCS. Kelly, our leader gave us this month's challenge with a beautiful inspiration "Genesis", The Creation. We had to make a project featuring this inspiration, and the moment I read about it I thought of this SU stamp set. I don't have many landscape stamps but this is not only one of the few but my favourite. I know the sentiment is not from Genesis but is MY favourite Psalm. At my church we have a hymn with this lyrics, the choir sang it to me when I got married and every time I hear it I cry like a little girl. LOVE IT!!!, that is why I used it. I still think that the picture though features the challenge!!!. 


Please visit the Faith group on the right side of my blog, they all have great inspiring projects for you to see, and leave some love for us. We all need a little bit of that!!!. 

For this card I used:

Cardstock: Cream from Recollections, Whisper White and Rose Red from SU
Designer Paper: Classic K from K&Company
Stamps: Light of the world from Our Daily Bread and Lovely as a tree from SU. I used the Watercolor Mini stamp set (the one with the little dots stamp) to make the tree's leaves. 
Accessories: Spellbinders from the frame (don't remember the name). Martha Stewart Pine Branch punch, Rose Red brads, Victoria Ribbon and Paper Piercing tool kit all from SU. Copic Markers to colour the image, Memento Tuxedo Black ink to ink it, Rose Red ink from SU for the sentiment and Crumb Cake ink for sponging the edges. 

Thanks for looking.
