Happy Thursday Everyone!! I hope you are all doing well!! Today is super busy and I will be gone most all day. Crazy!! I thought I better get my post up quick before running out the door.

Today is the Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge!!! Lori sent each of the team member the link to this picture for our Inspiration from Pacific Perfume:

I was inspired by the cameo coral color and the pattern. I thought the pattern assimilated the Fleur De Lis pendant shape so I went with a pattern paper from SU that had a similar pattern and the Fleur De Lis Embossing Folder from Cuttlebug. I combined the Divine Diva Challenge with the Mojo 111 Sketch for this week and the Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge as well.

Here is the Mojo Sketch:

The challenge for the Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge was:

"Create something about when God is "unseen"; i.e., a scrapbook layout that reminds you that God is always with you; a card to encourage a friend and remind them that God is with them; or perhaps something to hang on your wall as a reminder."

I used the verse from Scripture Collection 2 at Our Daily Bread Designs. I stamped a pattern around the verse using the Blessed Christmas set (also from ODBD)

Card Recipe
Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs- Blessed Christmas, Scripture Collection 2
Paper: Cameo Coral, SU Designer Paper, Black, White
Accessories: ZVA Creative Flourishes (pearls), lace, American Crafts Ribbon, Prima Flower (Windsor Chelsea Roses), Hero Art Pearls

Be sure to check out the cards made by all the Divine Divas for this inspiration challenge!







Hope you are inspired to come and play along. Just leave a comment here with a link to your card. We can't wait to see what you create! The keyword for uploading on SCS will be DDIC15.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I can't believe I finally have this posted. It took me an hour and a half to fight blogger this a.m. It would not let me upload my pictures. Oh is here now. I hope this isn't a sign how my day will be though. Have a great day!! Hope to stop by you all later this p.m. when I get home!!
