Good morning......

my stamping friends!! It is Sunday and time for a new Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge!! This week it is Kristine that will host and she has come up with an amazing challenge. Her scripture to focus on this week is:

MAIN VERSE: Mark 15:17 "They put a purple robe on him, then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on him." CONTEXT PASSAGE: See Mark 15: 16-20 

and the challenge is to:

Use shades of purple as your main color AND/OR use wood paper or elements on your card. 

 Well, I went the easy route and chose shades of purple and this is what came out


Purple tulips.....



Recipe:

Paper: SU Pale Plum, PTI white, Perfect Plum, Basic Grey Wisteria

Stamps: ODBD FriendshipTulip Corner 

Ink: SU Pale Plum, VersaFine Onyx Black, Memento Tuxedo Black

Accessories: Spellbinders Labels 18, Standard Circles Large ,Recollections silver half pearls,  Martha Stewart Butterflies punch, Zva Creative rhinestone flourish (corner of it)

Very plain and simple, but I needed a card that I can send through the mail with no problem ;D

To see  what my Design Sisters have come up with make sure you visit


Well, this is it for me for today. 

Today is a special day as I get to hear my  husband preach!  Our Pastor allows the Elders every other Sunday to preach, so he can get a rest. What a blessing it is to have a Pastor like that, plus I enjoy it when my husband brings the message...he studies so hard for it and is up most of the night to get his time with God and get ready to bring the word to us.
May all of you have a blessed Sunday!!

Thanks so much for stopping by.....it truly means a lot to me!

Hugs,

so very pretty, I haven't used purple in quite some time.... love the use of those dies together so pretty and love your embellishing of it too.
I don't think I would get a wink of sleep if I had to give the message at church, I am more the behind the scenes gal even though they are trying to get me to come out of my shell more :)
