Happy Sunday Everyone!! I hope you are all enjoying the weekend and that the weather is nice.  We are visiting with my sister and brother in law this weekend and today we take the long trek back home...Please bear with me today as I was in such a hurry before we left that this may be a short post or I may miss something. Infact I made this card at 3 a.m. LOL!  I apologize in advance. 

Today it is time for another Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge!!  This week's host is my dear friend Kristine Breach.  Kristine chose the verse:

Ecclesiastes 3:14 "I know that whatever God does, it shall be forever. Nothing can be added to it, and nothing taken from it. God does it, that men should fear before Him."

Kristine's challenge at Stampin Sisters:
Follow the sketch to a "T" - not adding anything to it, or taking anything away from it. 

Here is Kristine's sketch:

This week's sponsor is Sweet and Sassy.  The Winner can select 3 digitals of their choice.

For my card, I used an exclusive line of stamps available at our dt sister, Lisa's, new store, the Craft's Meow, called Little Freida!!!! I just love this darling little Frieda's Daisy image She was so fun to color and paper piece!!  If you have not seen Lisa's store, you should really check it out, in addition to the Little Freida and Friends line, she has many stamp kits, and stamps designed by the talented Nina B!!

Back to my card.....  My papers are from the Prima Madeline collection.  The base is Textured Pink Pirouette from Stampin up.  Within the circle panel I placed some ZVA Creative roses and a pink flower I received in a RAK.  I also used my SB classic circles die and , a MS butterfly punch and my Martha Stewart fence punch.

For more inspiration for the Stampin in Christ Challenge, please visit my dt sisters:
Grace, Linda, Lisa, Peggysue, Randi (on leave), Miesje, Kristine, Sabrina, Marilynn and  Rebecca.
