Colors of Spring

This week is a color challenge. We challenge you to create with:


and a scripture, or uplifting verse or positive words of healing, encouragement, or support

"The earth causes plants to grow, and a garden causes the seeds planted in it to grow. In the same way the Lord God will make goodness and praise come from all the nations."
                                               ~ Isaiah 61:11 NCV ~
We are so happy to have From the Heart Stamps joining us with their sponsorship for you! You may remember them as Designed 2 Delight.
My card for this challenge is another CAS (for me) card using the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches (see my previous blog entry). I have started with a white card base, added a layer of green card and then a lively multi-colored stripy paper. I then made a "lacy" strip by punching both sides of the green paper using a Martha Stewart punch. I added a bit of yellow grosgrain ribbon across the lacy panel. I cut my colored image into a square and then used a LifeStyle Crafts lacy square die on which to adhere my image. I've popped the image up off the card using foam dots. I then computer generated my verse and cut it with a small oval Spellbinder die. I inked around the oval using Tim Holtz distressing ink in a honey color and topped it off with one pearl on each side.
We look forward to seeing your creations on our SPRING COLOURS theme. Do take a minute to run over to the Twist of Faith blog and see the lovely cards the DT have made this week for your inspiration -- they will all make you feel warm and sunny!


  1. You certainly fulfilled the DT requirement, Jenee....this is a really lovely Spring card.....and then some! You captured those tulip colours so beautifully, and they are framed so very prettily, too. Love the touch of the paper lace....gives the card a feminine touch.....love it!

  2. Beautiful card Jenee! I especially love your coloring of that image. You are one talented lady!
