Happy Sunday Everyone!! I hope you are all having a great weekend!!

Today I am poppin in to share a new challenge for Stampin Sisters in Christ.  This week's host is the sweet and talented, Lisa!!

Lisa chose the scripture:
Psalm 23, "The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever."

Lisa is challenging us to use the colors blue (still waters) and green (green pastures) in our creation.

Here is my creation for this week's challenge:

My box is created using the Be Mine Template created by Leigh Ann Baird available at Perfect Presentations.  The image is Wags N Whiskers- He Loves Me which is available as both a digi or rubber stamp. The designer paper is from Die Cuts With a View- Linen closet.  The layout uses the Papertake Weekly sketch.  The flowers are from ZVA creative.  The charm I bought at Michaels.  The fern springs are a Martha Stewart Punch.  The image is framed with a Spellbinders Lacey circles and classic circles dies.
