SSiC Challenge #158

Challenge:
Create a card/project with something handmade on it!
Could be a flower, stitching, patterned paper - show us your creativity!

Scripture:
Psalm 139:14
"I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well."

Sponsor: 
A Day for Daisies - www.adayfordaisies.com/stamps/

Prize offered to one randomly drawn name:
$12 gift card 

Hostess:
The lovely Linda
Please check out the devo she wrote about Psalm 139:14 at the main blog, SSiC,
or at her own blog. Inspirational thoughts!


Ok, I made this challenge SO much harder than necessary! It took me forever to make this "easy" card! I usually like making my own flowers but just coming up with what to use...oh, my! I sorted through my supplies again and again and while looking for something else came across the dried corn husks. Ahh yes...perfect for fall! So that is my handmade item! And, yes, it could also be considered a bow...so whatever you want to call it is fine with me.


The other ingredients:
The bird image is from our sponsor, A Day for Daisies, called "Flitter", colored with colored pencils
Gingham background paper is one of the "Rustic Gingham" digi papers from Daydream Designs
The Spellbinders "Labels 4"die cut was spritzed with Smooch Spritz and dry embossed with a Cuttlebug folder, then lightly inked
The sentiment is computer generated
The brad and other papers are from my stash

Hope you feel inspired to join our challenge this week at Stampin Sisters in Christ! We'd love to see what handmade items you create!
