Happy Sunday Everyone!! I hope you are all enjoying this beautiful weekend!!  Today is a new Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge!

Today's challenge is hosted by the sweet and talented Rebecca.  Rebecca chose the verse:
Gen. 1:1 In The Beginning GOD Created The Heavens and The Earth

My husband and I were just talking about the seasons and how beautiful they are.  Each one has their place and they are all so beautiful!! The leaves are beginning to change colors, the mums are out, and the air is getting crisper with each passing day.  I am in awe at God's handiwork!!  The earth is so much more beautiful than anything I could EVER create.   I call creation: God's Canvas.

Rebecca's challenge is:
Create a nature card or project, using anything pertaining to nature,birds,trees, flowers, mountains....the sky is the limit.

Here is my creation:
My card uses the new release Randi's song and the Brocade Background from Our Daily Bread Designs.  The leaf was embossed in white on black paper and cut out.  There is no designer paper on this creation.  All the black and white is stamps stamped on white cs.  The background paper is embossed with the Leaves folder from Cuttlebug.

The Stamp set Randi's song was named in honor of our DT sister Randi who is yet again battling with cancer.  This song has special meaning and significance to Randi and is near and dear to her heart.

Card Recipe:

stamps: Randi's song and the Brocade Background from Our Daily Bread Designs
paper: white and black
accessories: Leaves embossing folder, black May Arts ribbon from my dear friend Grace, silver baubles, Spellbinders Labels 14, Spellbinders Lacey circles, Spellbinders classic circles, EK Success border punch, button, silver cording
