SSIC #136

This week's challenge from Stampin' Sisters in Christ is #136, to use soft pastels.  It's inspired by Psalm 119:105, "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path."  And if you've ever in your life been an Amy Grant fan, then you can't help but sing those words, can you?  :-D 

I used yellow as my soft pastel, with cream and kraft.  Why kraft?  Because I love it and rarely think to use it.  It feels to me like it adds a modern touch to a card, and I'm trying to use it more.  This was my first time using MFT's rolled roses dies and hey, they weren't that hard!  :-D  There's a learning curve, but they really are fun to do.  This turned out kind of, well, not CAS, but approaching it, wouldn't you agree?  I'm trying to get out of my comfort zone now and then!  :-)  



Supplies
stamps:  Verve--Psalm 46:1 Plain Jane
paper:  PTI--Vintage Cream, Kraft, Lemon Tart, Father Knows Best PP
ink:  PTI--Classic Kraft
other:  Embossing Powder--Filigree Clear; Dies--Spellbinder Labels 15 &  MFT--Rolled Roses; Ribbon--Stash; Embossing Folder--Cuttlebug; Border Punch--E.K. Success

Very lovely Jill! I have the mini rolled rose dies and they can be tricky! I find that I like them done in felt the best (PTI felt is fantastic!)paper is a bit tougher. Have a great evening ;)

Hi Jill! I love Amy Grant! Her CD was one of the first ones I ever owned! :) And yes, I would say CAS! LOVE your flowers...for your first try: perfect! I have had those dies a while and cannot get 'em to work right. So beautiful. I love the shape of those layered diecuts too.

Fantastic! You've got those rolled roses down. Classy use of the Kraft too. Kraft can look rather casual to me sometimes, but paired with the cream and butter is looks the goods. Magnificent work.
