Mustard Seed Faith Challenges

Starting today some of my Sisters in Christ friends plus some new Sisters in Christ are being part of a new challenge blog. our hope is to encourage each other in our creative endeavors, to encourage each other in or walks of Faith and to proclaim and "make famous" Jesus, our Savior. Come check out the new challenge blog Mustard Seed Faith Challenges 
The challenge this week was to make a card using  mustard color  I decided that I would go fancy mustard. Think grey poupon. That would be my butterflies as well as one of the layers and the small rectangle. Thankful to share the love of Christ with my sisters and you. Blessings.

TIME OUT celebrating 3 years

TIME OUT challenges is having a blog hop party to celebrate 3 years of challenges.

STAMPlorations is one of the sponsors of this party. They are offering this fabulous set:

I used this set to make my card. I stamped the pocket onto a scrap of paper that was laying on my desk. I added some cheesecloth. I used the "I LOVE YOU" sentiment on a piece of red cardstock that I cut just the word "love" out and made the little tag. The flowers were stamped and watercolored. I used burned glue to make the centers.
