Hello Friends!! I hope you are all enjoying your summer!! Today I would like to share a creation I made using one of my fave parts of summer: FLOWERS!!  I just love flowers, especially this year as I am unable to get out.  All I have to do is look out my window to see all our Day Lilies. This isn't a Day Lily but it is a flower!!

I incorporated the Red, White and Blue  from this week's Shining the Light challenge at ODBD and some of the newest pennants from Our Daily Bread Designs: Pennant Swag Alphabet and the Pennant Swag Die.  The image is from the Serve the Lord stamp set cut out with the Crocheted Circle Die.  The embossed background is Sizzix Quatrefoil.  The border along the bottom is punched with the Martha Stewart Lace Eyelet Die.

Properties: Our Daily Bread Designs, Pennant Swag Alphabet, Serve the Lord, Crocheted Circle Die, Pennant Swag Die, designer-Chris Olsen

I made this card for a dear sweet friend from church who is going through a rough time right now.  The inside of the card includes this verse:

Isaiah 41:10 
So do not fear, for I am with you;
    do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
    I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters: Cheryl Scrivens, DJ Rants, Diana Nyugen, Robin Clendenning, Linda Carson, and Elizabeth Whisson.

Oh, Chris, this is gorgeous! I just love your style of adding beautiful texture with the embossing and the gems, and then I love this poppy image so beautifully colored! The new pennant swag is perfect, and I love how you've added "friend" with DP. Stunning, and your friend will really love this and certainly be encouraged by the verse and words you write inside!
