Be Still (C4C69, QFTD42)

This is for two challenges. The Crazy 4 Challenges challenge was a color inspiration challenge. We are to create a card using the colors in the inspiration photo. I used the pinks for the flowers and butterfly and the brown for the base card, mat, pearls, and ink for the sentiment and sponging. The other challenge is the Queen for the Day Challenge on SCS. This week's queen is foxy67. Pat is a talented stamper. I've been in her gallery before to comment, but today was the first time I really got to spend time there. The card I chose to CASE was her "For QFTD20" card. I know this is a CASE of a CASE, but Pat did such a beautiful job that I couldn't pass this one by. I changed the colors, embossing folder, Nestie, flowers and stamp. The stamp is from Our Daily Bread Designs Scripture Collection #3. The flowers were punched with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and then embossed. Brown half pearls were added to the flower centers and to the butterfly. The butterfly was sponged with Chocolate Chip ink. The embossing folder is the new Framed Tulips Impressions Folder from Stampin' Up! The main image panel is die cut using a Labels Ten Nestie. The card stocks I used are: Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Pretty In Pink, Pink Passion, Pixie Pink and Old Olive. Most of this was from my scrap basket. Thanks so much for stopping by!!!
