Divine Design September

It's September 9th ... time to post our Divine Design projects for this month. I've been making bookmarks but this month decided to make a card instead.
I chose the verse from Romans 12:12 - "Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction , faithful in prayer." This little verse is important to me because it focuses on three areas I want to grown in. Having this card out on my desk will give me the opportunity to see this scripture several times each day.

Be sure to check out Lori, Angel, Taylor & Jami's projects too! And when you upload to SCS, use the words BVC09

I have to apologize for not posting a Divine Design project for August. This challege came during finals week and I was just too buried in school work to even think about stamping. I really enjoyed making today's project. Stamping with scriptures is always extra fun :) !

For today's card I used a retired SU set called Elegant Expressions for the verse and a newer SU set called Thoughts and Prayers for the flowers. I colored the stamp with SU markers (Old Olive, Pumpkin and Ruby Red) then shimmered 'em with Spica glitter pens. The shiny finishng touch was Crystal Effects in the centers of the flowers. The cardstock is PT white, Old Olive & Ruby Red and that beautiful Olive ribbon is from the new Holiday Mini Catalog. I ran some Olive cardstock through an embossing folder then punched out the Photo Corners.

Thanks for stopping by :) .... I hope you're playing along with Divine Design. Remember, you can start anytime, the rules are simple and you can find all the details right HERE.
