Snippets and a Scripture

Welcome

Today is the start of the new challenge at Word Art Wednesday ,
where we are being sponsored by the wonderful Really Reasonable Ribbon.
This week's uplifting scripture is available free at the Word Art Wednesday site.


I started this card, which is a mini slim-line style, with a piece of deep pink/red card that was on my desk, and then I found this remnant/snippet of napkin/serviette covered  card that 'worked' with it.


I printed the scripture, then cut a S.B scalloped rectangle from another snippet of the base card, lengthening the rectangle as I did so.  


I offset the rectangle slightly on the base to add in the ribbon - not one from our sponsor, but similar to their wonderful grosgrain ribbon.  I added a wee 'faux bow' on the plain stripe. 


To finish the card I added some Glossy Accents to the centres of the flowers and the corners of the scripture panel.


I am linking this to:

The card base, background panel and also backing of the scripture panel are all snippets
