Post #2 for Today!

And I am posting for the Clearly Inspired Challenge found over on the Clear Dollar Stamps Blog.
It's a color challenge, RED, BLACK, WHITE, and if you want, PINK. I used the John 3:16 stamp because, when using these colors, one thinks of love...and this verse speaks to us all about God's love. I did my new favorite technique of leaving what I've cut out and embossed inside my nestie so I can do some sponging - this is where I added some of the pink! The red layer I found in my stash and already came embossed with hearts -- perfect!! I have a hard time with flower arranging, whether in a vase or on a project, and this was no exception! Only three primas and I had a devil of a time with them!!!!! I added some red and pink leaves along with a black swirl that I punched out. The flowers are held in place with red brads. A little sewing and some ribbon and I'm done. A quick card...if those flowers had come with instructions!!!!!!!!!! See you tomorrow with more sneak peeks!!!!

Linda, this card is gorgeous! I love it! Great use of the Nesties showcasing the scipture and your prima flower arrangement along with the flourish is fantastic! What in the world are you talking about, having problems with flowers! It sure doesn't look like it! Beautiful work!
