Here's my take on the challenge this week, a center step card. I used the tutorial from Split Coast Stampers which you can find here.
I used this beautiful new stamp called "Prayer of St. Francis". I love the words to this and the pretty font that's used. You really don't need to add much to this to make a card. I think this would be really nice to put in a decorated frame for a gift...which I think I may do!
Here's a close-up of the bow with that gorgeous silk ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I'm already almost out of this and will definitely need to get more and maybe check some other colors. Under the bow is black lace that I cut two sections apart and placed together to look like a butterfly. I thought it looked pretty neat and only used a tiny bit of the lace!
Here's a picture of the inside, I cut out one of the butterflies on the designer paper, curled it a little, and glued it down to just add a little something.
For my SPRING ingredients, I used:
S-Silk, P-Prayer, R-Rhinestones, I-Ink, N-New Stamp, G-Green
For all ingredients used:
Stamps: Prayer of St. Francis (ODBD)
Paper: Gabrielle Collection (Bo Bunny), Black (Stampin' Up), Natural White (Neenah), gold (DCWV Stack)
Ink: Onyx Black (VersaFine), Turquoise Gem (VersaMagic), Midnight Confession (Powder Puffs)
Accessories: Silk ribbon (Really Reasonable Ribbon), lace (Jo-Ann's), flower (RAK from Sabrina), Fanciful Flourish Die (Cheery Lynn Designs), rhinestone swirls (Recollections), sponge, adhesive pearls (Recollections).

I'm also entering this into two other challenges, the latest challenge at Word Art Wednesday Challenge #23 which you can find here. This is the verse given for you to use if you choose. What a beautiful verse and message this is.
Also, the latest challenge at Stampin' Sister's in Christ, Challenge #134, which you can find here. The challenge is to make a joy-ful card, something celebratory! This is the verse given to us.
"Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart." Hebrews 12:2-3
I'd also like to thank all of you that voted for me at Heartfelt Creations for their Design Team Contest. Yesterday was the last day to vote, and I submitted my projects to them. Now I just need to wait and see! Thank you for supporting me!
That's it for today! Hope to see you join in on the SPRING Challenge!
