Happy Sunday All!!  I hope you have all been enjoying the weekend!!  Normally we would be camping over the Labor Day weekend...but not this weekend...I do miss it but we are having quality family time regardless. it is time for another Stampin Sister's in Christ challenge.  This week's challenge is hostessed by my dear dt sister, Peggysue.

Peggysue chose the verse:
1 Thessalonians 4:11-12 "Make it your aim to live a quiet life, to mind your own business, and to earn your own living, just as we told you before.12 In this way you will win the respect of those who are not believers, and you will not have to depend on anyone for what you need."

Peggysue's  challenge:
Use 'quiet' colors in your creation, either pastels, or low key earthtones, soft, muted shades of beige or neutrals (nothing bright)

Here is my take on the challenge using the new release Seed Packet and The Good Seed from Our Daily Bread Designs to make a gift bath seeds packet.  This is not a template but rather my own design. My soft subtle colors are baja breeze and soft sky.  The sentiment is stamped on vellum. The dies used on this box include Classic  and scalloped ovals and Floral Doily Accents. The bow is tied with the bow easy and the May Arts Wrinkled Ribbon.

I hope you enjoyed my creation.

Be sure to check out  Peggysue's devotional on the SSIC Blog, as I know you'll be blessed!
