Crafters of Faith ~ Smile!

Smile!


 Proverbs 15:13 says "A joyful heart makes a cheerful face
and today's cheery card is a reflection of all the joy
and happiness my blogging friends bring :)

And it's posting day for the Crafters of Faith!  This is always a fun time to post and this month is no exception.  Our lovely hostess, Sharon, gave us such an amazing challenge to work with this time around.
Here is her challenge for us:

 * For this challenge, I would like to see you use both old stash and new stash to create your card/project.

* To add a little fun to the challenge, I'd love to see you try a new technique -- something you've never done before. You can check out google, youtube, or even the SCS forums and galleries for inspiration! 

* Make sure you tell me what's new and what's old and post a link or give a little description of the technique you used.

And here is my card!
For the 'new' part of the challenge, I followed these two challenges on SCS:
1.  TLC414 "Play with Balance" ~ I added the smiling flower to the large card base as balance of large to small ... and
2. TLC363 ~ "Make your own Stripes"  (made with dsp as small panels)



Since the challenges are the new part of the card requirements, the old is the stamps I've used ~ TGF's Summer stamp and sentiment.  I've also had this Crate Paper paper pad and loved the versatile colors it holds - perfect for a mish-mash design :)  

And that's about it from me for today!
Please be sure to stop by the COF girls - on my sidebar - 
and see what beautiful creations they've created this month!

Big hugs,
Bigger Blessings!
