Blessings

A young lady in our extended family is getting baptized on Sunday.  This sweet card is for her.  I don't have any baptism stamps, but I think this elegant church building gets the idea across. : )    The church image and one of the pearl flourishes was in my "bits and pieces" stash; I was just playing around with the color, but it really worked well with this color scheme.  Unfortunately, by cutting the circle out of the square panel, I added two more pieces to the stash. So net gain = 0.  The polka dotted circle is pretty cute, I should be able to use it up a little more easily than some other items.  The sentiment is a bit hard to read sideways.  It says "I'm proud of you".

Challenges:
Dis Digi Designs--make it green (the aqua tides card stock is green though it reads kind of gray in the photo and the flourishes are mint colored)
One Sweet Challenge--Scream for green
Crafts Galore--stamp or digi
Sentimental Sunday #196--sketch

Twisted Tuesday #71--live a clean, green life (no distressing and no inking, though I really wanted to ink the edges of the sentiment piece)
Word Art Wednesday #122--anything goes with uplifting sentiment
C.R.A.F.T. #249--Mother's Day or for a Female
Stamping with Dragon--Let's go green
Sister Act Card Challenge #47--anything goes
Pattie's Creations #87--green for St. Patrick's Day
Sweet n' Sassy release challenge--stamp on die cuts
Verve March Diva Dare--Do the Polka
Raisin Boat #20--It's A Girl Thing

Supplies:
Stamps: Emma Canning "Church" digi; PTI "The Sweet Life" roses; Verve "Take Note" sentiment
Dies: spellbinders circles, large, Floral Doily Motif,  and File Folder tab; PTI "The Sweet Life" die
