Crafters of Faith Monthly Challenge Card

Good Morning & Happy Tuesday Everyone!
I hope you all had a great weekend....mine was extremely busy as always but nice.  I spent yesterday making sure I have everything ready for class this Friday evening in my home & I'm pretty excited about that!  I can't wait to share my love of rubber stamping with my new friends!!!

Anywhooo, my post for today is featuring a creation I made for a blog group I belong to called Crafters of Faith.  Our leader Kelly  asked us to make something with the book of Genesis in mind while using the colors green, brown or yellow and as many embellishments as we wanted to use.  I decided to use flowers, different shades of green & brown along with pearls and some luscious seam binding ribbon to make my card.  My design is pretty simple but since it's also doubling as a card for my son.....I think it's perfect!  Please check out the rest of the creations from the group & leave them some love:

Well, I'm off to figure out dinner....I know it's really early but my DH is on a crazy schedule right now so I have to cook very early so he'll have dinner when he gets home today.  Thanks so much for stopping by & I hope you have a great rest of the day!
Until Next Time,
Hugs & Love,
