"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." ~ Isaiah 55: 8-11

SCALLOPED FLOWER / CD #50 & 2S4Y #43...


Here's my first card for the Color Dare design team, YAY!!!



Riley picked some awesome colors for this week's Color Dare - ones that I wouldn't normally put together, especially the Creamy Caramel... (not sure if I used that one in the last year!) but I think they look great together! I used Kazan's sketch #43 over at 2 Sketches 4 You with this color combo ~ sort of.


I had some Ruby Red dsp that has retired, so I used that, along with a Bermuda Bay paper from the Thoroughly Modern dsp from Stampin' Up! The "flower" is made from 4 scalloped circles punched out. I glued 1/2 of the circles & pinched one end together to secore it, then overlapped them into the flower shape... clear as mud, right? I'll try to put up a mini tutorial this afternoon.


Thanks for stopping by & be sure to play along at the Color Dare this week!!!
