 Hi, everyone!  I've got some exciting news today: I am the guest designer for the week over on the For Fun Challenges blog!!!!  I'm super honored and excited to be playing along with these ladies.  This week's theme is F.R.O.G. (Fully Rely on God).  For the focus of my card (and to show that we rely on God for our strength when we have a relationship with Him) I chose to use this gorgeous sentiment from WORD Art by Karen.  She has tons of beautifully written Bible verses and sayings and they're all free!  I loved the flourishes on this one; so elegant!
 This week the challenge over at CRAFT challenges is to create an easel card.  It's really fun and easy, so give it a try if you've never taken the plunge before.  I also used the Pretty Pattern #61 sketch, the Stampin' Sisters in Christ #140 challenge to build up your card with layers and layered elements, and last week's Pretty Palette #60 challenge to use aqua, kraft and orange.  I was not very sure about those colors together, but I think I might be in love. : )
Here's a close up of the easel portion of the card.  Don't forget to go check out the For Fun blog and play along.  I would love to see your take on this challenge and as a guest designer, I will be visiting each blog to view the beautiful creations.

Paper: DCWV (aqua and kraft); SU! (orange) a little scrap from a Basic Grey pack
Stamps: PTI (Guide Lines 2); Clear Dollar Stamps (Elegant Flourishes); Word Art by Karen (digital file)
Dies/Punches: PTI (border punch and "Turning a new leaf" die); Spellbinders (Classic Ovals, large and classic scalloped ovals, large); Martha Stewart (butterfly punch)
Embellishments: little tiny pearls
