Crafters of Faith ~ Flowers

I have two posts today.  If you are looking for my {Pin}Spirational Challenge Card, please scroll up.

Today is the last day of the month and I am here to welcome you to my Crafters of Faith card! The Crafters of Faith blogging group is a joyous blending of Christian friends ~ joined together to fellowship, share our faith, build friendships and craft together!

This is our April Challenge—as posed by April--no, that is not a mistake

I spent my childhood being called April Showers or even April Flowers.....hence my email address of aflowers.... It would probably be called bullying nowadays, but I seemed to take it all in stride. Because of this moniker, I wanted to highlight a verse which is about Spring. I think this one is apropos!

Leviticus 26:4 - Then I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall yield her increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit.

Although my verse does not say flowers explicitly, a plant must flowers before it bears fruit. I would love your card this month to show off flower --- stamps, die cuts, crocheted, etc.! {If you want, you can add rain, but that isn't a necessity.}

Have fun with this verse and the glorious Spring Season!

I love flower stamps and have quite a few.  I got this stamp a year ago when Outline Stamps closed their doors and have not inked it up lately.  I tried to match the colors of the flowers to the colors in the DSP I was planning to use, but I needed to add a few brighter colors to make the image pop!

Here is the inside of my card:

Image/Sentiment—Outlines Rubber Stamps Rubber Growing Bouquet 1
CardstockStampin’ Up Old Olive, Baja Breeze, Marina Mist and Paisley Petals DSP

Ink—Memento Tuxedo Black

Accessories—Copic Markers; Labels 1 and Scallops 1; Sizzix Flowers Embossing Folder; Marina Mist 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you do check out the other new creations from the wonderful ladies in the Crafters of Faith group! The blog list is on the left side--please check out all of the cards.
