Stamping In Time #15

I really enjoy taking part in certain challenges like the ones at Our Daily Bread Designs because it gives me the opportunity to make cards that are a little more elegant.   I have been participating in ODBD's Shining the Light challenge and have added their Stamping in Time On Assignment (SNTODBD15) challenge to my growing list.  This week's challenge was to use a "go to" sketch for your card.  I don't have a particular sketch that I return to over and over again, but I do have a sketch blog that I return to over and over again:  Clean & Simple.  Lately I have used one Clean & Simple sketch (which I have posted) for several cards and I'm using it again for this card.   The stamps I used are from the ODBD set Grow in Grace, which I just love.  The dogwood image is gorgeous and the sentiments/verses are beautiful. 

I punched the bottom edge of the cream cardstock piece and then stamped the dogwood image on the cream cardstock with River Rock and then on a scrap of cream in Pretty in Pink.  The three flowers were trimmed out and popped up on the main image.  I slightly overstamped the verse over the main image as well.  I added a few little rhinestones and some yummy cream organdy ribbon to finish it off.  

Thanks for taking a peek... have a wonderful day!
