He Leads Me

I got a little punch crazy but in a good way for this beauty! I put this card together earlier today because I had some left over mini blossoms from my tutorial that I posted yesterday and decided that they needed to be put to good use :) They are the perfect size to climb up along side my Psalm 23 stamp from Our Daily Bread Designs . I love that this card looks like it's hard to make but with enough paper punches, even your husbands could make this card! lol

Believe it or not, but the hardest part of making this card was what colours to use that matched my Basic Grey Designer paper! I used one of sheets from the Eva Collection that I just received in my last order from Clear Dollar Stamps. I ended up choosing Kiwi Kiss and Elegant Eggplant for the matting and went with Pale Plum for the blossoms. I used Apricot Appeal Brads from Stampin' Up and the leaf punch is one of my newest acquisitions from the Martha Stewart line. The punched border at the top of the card is a Fisgars Embossing Punch and I parked some Elegant Eggplant card stock underneath it to stabilize it on the dimensionals.
