Pleasant Words

This week I was able to finish my challenge card for Sweet Stamps and for Our Daily Bread Designs before the deadline. Hooray! Sweet Stamps wants to see a stamped background and ODBD asked for scripture on the card.
I started my card by stamping the flower (Sweet Stamps) on light green cardstock. The flower was colored using distress markers. Then I masked the flower and stamped the background honeycomb pattern (Rogue Redhead Designs). The bee (Stampotique) was stamped over the background and colored with distress marker and picket fence stickles. The scripture text (ODBD) was stamped on cardstock and die cut using a Spellbinders die. I cut out a layering piece and adhered the diecut to it. The imag/sentiment panel was layered on a black anel and then to an ochre card base.
