Fullness of Joy - SNSDC69

It's Friday so that means it's time for another Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge.  This week's challenge is to use an old scrappy supply from your stash, a new scrappy supply and something blue.  There are several old items on my card (the bling, embossing folder, dies, DMC floss, stamp, pen and cardstock), some newish but have been used before (the designer paper and blue cardstock), and the flowers are my brand new item. There are several blue elements on my card.  My card is a 5.5" square.

I really like making a Scripture verse the focal point on my cards.  There's nothing more important than God's Word and our cards are such a good way to encourage others.  I also like quilts.  This card features 3/4" squares put together in 4 9-patch squares to make my quilted panel.  After adhering the squares to my base cardstock (which you can't see), I ran it thru and embossing folder to making it look more "quilted."  I then adhered that to a navy mat.  I hand-stitched knots using embroidery floss in the corners of the squares to "tie-off" my quilt.  This panel was adhered to the matted designer paper with pop dots and then attached to the card base.

My sentiment panel is double matted and then I used glue dots to attach the flowers and leaves.  Some bling finished off the flower centers.  The sentiment panel was attached to the quilt with another set of pop dots.

Cardstock:  Stampin' Up, Recollections
Designer Paper:  Stampin' Up (Comfort Cafe)
Stamp:  Sweet 'n Sassy Digi (Hummingbird with Scripture)
Embellishments/Tools:  DMC Floss (Ecru), Spellbinders {Standard Circles Large & Small, Lacey Circles, M-bossabilities (Whimsy - A)}, SU Stampin' Write pen (Night of Navy), flowers (Studio G), rhinestones (Queen & Co - Baby Blue)

Wow, Steph! This looks like it was a lot of work putting all those squares together, almost like making a quilt. But it sure turned out beautifully. And what a wonderful verse. Thanks for sharing the gorgeous card with us this week at Word Art Wednesday. It's a blessing, and an encouragement to us - just like YOU!
Have a great week in the Lord.
