Blessed is he

 I was in need of a masculine birthday card for a man at our church.  So, I pulled out this beautiful sentiment stamp and some cool, masculine patterned paper, added a bit of chocolate brown ribbon and some copper brads.  All the panels were matted on kraft card stock and everything was adhered to a kraft card base.

I've been seeing this fun idea round about on a bunch of blogs: Just Stash January (where you go the whole month of January without buying ANY new supplies--use what you have!) and decided to play along.  We all have so many unused goodies languishing away in our craft rooms.  Let's pull them out and show them some love.  The patterned paper has been in my stash for 2-3 years and I've had this sentiment much longer.  The ribbon and brads I have also had for several years.  Nothing new to see here!

Supplies:
Stamps: Verve "Jeremiah 17:7 Plain Jane"
Dies: Spellbinders "A2 Matting Basics A" rectangle
