Refuge and Strength

Well I gave everyone a good laugh on some of the yahoo groups I belong to. I called this card Refuse and Strength it should have been Refuge and Strength. One lady was kind enough to comment that my card certainly was not refuse (garbage). I never will be known for my grammar or spelling skills. I do use spell check but if the word is spelt correctly it will not necessarily pick up the wrong meaning. Anyway on to the details of the card.


I just received this stamp set. I had been wanting to make some inspirational cards and felt that this set was probably one of the more appropriate ones for what I was wanting to do.

So as you all know by now the stamp set is Refuge and Strength it is on page 59 of the Stampin Up catalogue. I decided to use my new designer paper called To The Nines, this paper is almost if not a card stock weight and it is beautiful. I first cut the Top Note piece and then use the reverse side for the first layer.
I stamped the cross after I had already stamped off once in Close to Cocoa. I stamped the verse and the flower in Basic Brown. I sponged the oval with Creamy Caramel. Every time I see Caramel I think of my granddaughter who insists that I pronounce it incorrectly. Kinda like tomato and tamato.

The scalloped oval was cut from Always Artichoke card stock. I used the new ribbon from the Sellabration catalogue. The corner embellishments are in Always Artichoke and is a Cuttlebug die.

Thanks for looking and commenting.

Peg,

LOL! I have the exact same issue with my spelling. I have learned humility through my misspellings. I am glad I am not the only one. Your card is beautiful - in fact all of the Refuge & Strength cards are beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
