"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

RHINESTONE~y BUTTON~y FLOWER~y THANKS / CTD # 92 & S411-SSC #150...


Yeah, I know, a RIDICULOUSLY long name for such a simple card... sometimes I just can't help myself! Actually the titles I give my posts/cards are so that when I scroll through my archives I know which card it is...usually!




Today's card is brought to you by my overflowing bucket of scraps! I've seen this fun sketch on a few blogs & decided THIS SKETCH from Stamping 411 needed to go with THESE COLORS from Color Throwdown!

No stamping on this card... just lots of paper and little bit of bling! I used my Martha grass border punch for the strips of Old Olive cs & Kiwi Kiss DSP, and the flower die is from Papertey Ink. The buttons are also PTI, and the rhinestones are from Basic Grey... The ribbon was also from my scrap jar. I wrote the sentiment with a white gel pen! Reduce, reuse, recycle!

Thanks for taking a gander!
