Serene Silhouettes and Trust God sets from Stampin' UP!

Hi friends, happy hump day. I hope your week is buzzing by just fine. I went out to deliver orders last night and show my lucky stamping buddies the Holiday catalog and we all decided we needed to keep on working to pay for all the new stuff in that catalog coming up in August. LOL! It is so awesome you won't believe it. I stamped a bit yesterday and then decided to make deliveries. I take this saying to heart and try to live my life like that but it doesn't always go so simply. I guess the coon has moved on because he hasn't been destroying anything lately but I never caught him either.
I made this card using the Serene Silhouettes and Trust God stamp sets. I love the names of these sets and the stamps in them too. I take this saying to heart and try to live my life like that but it doesn't always go so simply.I made another card with the same flower stamp that I will show you later. This card I made for the ColourQ challenge for this week. I like doing that weekly now. It gives me something to stamp for and the colors are so pretty. It actually called for Brocade Blue so I substituted Marina Mist instead and I just used my sponge and inked it up and rubbed across my card stock. The Chevron background and the edging and the greeting shape are all Big Shot tools.  I tell you those tools really enhance a card nicely, don't you think? I added some pearls to the base of the flowers to dress it up more.

Here are the details:
Stamp Sets: Serene Silhouettes, Trust God
Card Stock: Lucky Limeade, Bashful Blue, Whisper White
Inks: Night of Navy, Bashful Blue, Marina Mist, Lucky Limeade
Tools: Big Shot, Chevron Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Framelits Labels Collection, Finishing Touches Edgelits, Linen Thread, Sponge, Basic Pearls, Dimensionals.
Thanks for stopping by to look around and I hope you can get a bit of inspiration while you are here. Remember to create something cute and happy stamping.
Hugs, Bev
