stamping in time with Betty...

 It is time again to play along with the Stamping in Time with Betty challenge.  This week Betty's guest host is Marcelle and she is giving us challenge choices. We can choose to either use brads or colored pencils, so being the adventurous type I chose to us both.  Now brads and colored pencils may not be used that much by others people but they are staples for me so this was a super easy challenge.

A bunch of the breadsticks are playing along with Betty and Marcelle today so you may want to check out their blogs and see what they have come up with using colored pencils and/or brads.
My card today was also inspired by three other challenges.  I used flowers as challenged by the Stampin' Sisters in Christ, the sketch from The Lord Have Mercy sketch challenge and my color choices were from the Color Throwdown.

What I used:
Our Daily Bread Designs Mom
GP white, SU sage shadow, bordering blue and almost amethyst card stock
Memento black, SU bordering blue
Prismacolor pencils, OMS and blending stumps
white brads
white satin ribbon
sponge

Your card is lovely, and the verse struck me! What a wonderful and confirming message to all women and certainly to mothers. ODBD chose well, and you have showcased it beautifully. Thank you!
I have ordered the set and will use that verse on the Mother's Day cards I send to my daughters.
