Winner and Card Patterns 99

Layers of Color is sponsoring the Card Patterns 99 challenge this week and sure hope you get a chance to play along.  They are offering this new stamp set The Love Chapter, illustrated by Nina Brackett.  It is a beautiful set and you should just see what the others LOC designers have created with it!!!  I used Graphic 45 patterned paper and kept it to a Black/Sand color combination.  I stamped the beautiful script stamp along the left edge and collage of words on the patterned paper behind the focal image. The focal image within the Nestie circles is also in the stamp set.

Thank you so much for all of the comments and I certainly have a LOT in common with so many of you!!  My goals are to color better (Copic challenged here, lol!), would love to be more organized, participate in more challenges, have a goal as well to finish my Christmas cards before Thanksgiving, and certainly use those supplies that get neglected.  So many great goals!  On the submission one...all of your should definitely submit!!  It is worth a try and with so many publication calls being electronic now so easy to do.  I am pulling for you all and be sure to pop in and let me know when one gets accepted...I want to see!!!

AND the WINNER is:

Hi Jennie! Congratulations my friend! I'm so happy for you! I need to go pick up a copy so I can see your cards! You certainly deserve it! God has blessed you greatly and you are using it for His glory! Love your cute froggy card! Your candy is wonderful too! Think I'll wait to buy that copy just a little longer! :) My craft goals like most... are to get better organized, use more of what I have, and expand my "style". I want to do all styles from elegant to vintage to cutesy and do them comfortably.
Thanks for the chance to win this aweseome set too!!!

Thanks for stopping by Jennie I love what you said about "The birds are just a lovely and your trinkets/trash are well recycled into something even more beautiful and meaningful. Quite a picture of what the Lord will do with our lives if we will let Him have His way!" SO TRUE I couldn't agree more. I can say that because the Lord really has done that with me. I am a recycled and transform creature alive in Christ! Without Him I am nothing.
