Just words


Just words? Stampin' Sisters In Christ by DT member, Candace, presents a scripture: Psalm 119:105 "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path." Her challenge is to use only words -- no image in a creation this week. Because the verse I used was to dominate the card, I decided to make a tent card to draw extra focus. The design paper is from a
pad (Two Scoops) I cut into for the first time sent to me by Kelly at KL StampinNscrappin (random prize draw at a House Mouse challenge). Kelly has a new challenge every Saturday and among her DT tutorials is one for a tent card.

Stuff I used: Northern Lights Embossing Powder, Birthstone Kaleidacolor stamp pad, Nestabilities, Cuttlebug embossing folder, MS Border punch, Emaginations punch, ribbon, flowers, heart from stash. Stamps: Embossing Arts and Stampendous. Sometimes it just amazes me how much stuff it takes to make just one card! I feel so lucky! (to have lots of stuff).
