And if I may, I would like to dedicate the PC Connections article and this post to my wonderful Mom, whose love, encouragement and generosity have fueled my love for both Christ and papercrafting. I love you, Mom, and everything that I am and have accomplished today is because of you. Yours and Dad's sacrifices will not go unnoticed by our Lord and I am thankful that you seek His glory in all things. I miss you both so much.
The card above uses my Lovely Shelf set. The cardstocks are GinaK Green Apple and Innocent Pink. It's a variation of a card I have published in the Paper Crafts Card Styles magazine under the Elegant category.
The PC blog is also offering a BIG giveaway from companies whose products I used in the card below. GinaK Designs (the cardstocks and button), Layers of Color (the sponged stencil background), Spellbinders (the scallop circle die to make the flower), SRM Stickers (sentiment) are all offering a generous giveaway on the Paper Crafts Connection blog today, so make sure you stop by there and enter.
The background was achieved by embossing (using a Cuttlebug) and sponging Layers of Color's Medallion stencil (it's on sale right now!). The flowers were punched sheets of an old hymnal. The cardstocks are GinaK Innocent Pink and Ivory. The leaves are by Prima. The lace is local (but Wright's makes something almost identical) and the ribbon is by American Crafts.
Finally, if you are curious to know more about the Christ I mentioned above, please email me. You can read more about Him --->> HERE. Or you can click on the tab above, "Who Do You Think Jesus Is." He is the Ruler of my life, the source of all joy and hope that make my life as blessed as it is. To Him be the glory alone!
