Keep Climbing

Good morning friends

First of all let me say that this card is not original. I got this set of stamps, Keep Climbing, from Our Daily Bread Designs last month and at the time I  went onto their website and saw a few cards using these stamps. I needed to do something fairly quickly today because I wanted to get it into the post and I remembered this  card so mine is almost a copy, with some changes of stamps and dies. This card is for a dear friend who is going through a very rough time right now.

Click on image to enlarge picture.

The dark green card is from my stash and I stamped the images and sentiments onto green mottled paper, also from my stash. The  verse of scripture is mounted onto one of the dies from Resplendant Rectangles.
The mountains and sentiment are from the ODBD set, and the floral images and butterfly are from a Stampendous set I bought yesterday called Wildflower Sprigs.

I have been playing with some of the stuff I bought yesterday which has been quite fun so I'm sure I will be able to incorporate something into a card soon.

Well I hope you all have a good start to the weekend.

With love from Christine xx

Hi Christine, so what that you used someone else's design, we have to get our ideas from somewhere. We always add our own touches, anyway it's gorgeous, your friend will be uplifted when they receive it.

Good morning Christine, we all get our ideas from each other..I often google for ideas, especially when I have to make commissions at short notice and putting my own twist on a design, that's what's so great about crafting and crafters...we share!
