Psalm 91

Happy Wednesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. It so feels like spring here in the Pittsburgh area. We had a warm sunny day today. The tulips, daffodils and crocus are up just not bloomed yet.

Funny we had a snow storm on Saturday and Sunday. We didn't really have much of a winter this year. The news media here is already reporting that we will have a bug problem this summer because of the mild winter. I hope that is some inaccurate news- bugs yech!!

Well onto my card for today. This one I made for the color challenge #365 on Splitcoaststampers. Karen was our hostess and she wanted us to use blushing bride, wild wasabi and very vanilla. Such a pretty color combo.

I started this card with my layout. It's from the MojoMonday #231 sketch. Once I decided on this one, I started choosing how I would layer my colors.

I decided to use the blushing bride as my card base. I found some wild wasabi designer paper in my stash and used that for my next layer. It's from Stampin-Up's "porcelain prints" collection.

For the scalloped layer, I cut a doily in blushing bride with a die from MFT. I added some designer paper to the center of this. Blushing bride ribbon is layered over that. On the flagged pennant layer, I used the Stampin-Up "stripes" embossing folder.

The sentiment is the Scripture 2 collection from Our Daily Bread Designs. Stamped this in wild wasabi ink and added a die cut flower. I am also entering this in the ODBD flower challenge #99. This is their 4th anniversary month and flowers is one of the traditional gifts for a 4th anniversary.

Well, my blogger friends its late and time to dim the lights in charmed life land for another day. So until next time........God bless.

Some other challenges:
1.  Shopping Our Stash wants us to use embossing. I did both wet (sentiment) and dry (flagged layer).
2.  Craft Your Passion has an anything goes challenge.


  1. What a perfect take on the Mojo Sketch, Mary! Love that verse, your colors and your flower and use of dies are beautiful! Thanks for joining the ODBD Shining the Light challenge this week!!

  2. Oh, gosh, bugs! I hadn't thought about that result from the mild winter we have enjoyed, but you are right. Lovely card, love that sketch!
