Digital Tuesday - die cuts

Happy Tuesday!

Another Love card?   I know Valentine's Day is over now, but this card speaks of a never-ending love, an amazing love...

Amazing love is one of my all time favorite praise songs!

Amazing love,
How can it be
That You, my King, should die for me?
Amazing love,
I know it’s true.
It’s my joy to honor You,
In all I do, I honor You.

Stamps:  Doodle Pantry digi set (Christ's Gift)
Papers: vintage text, SU! cs, K&Co dp
Other: Nesties scallop circles for flower, MS pearl

Oh, I could tell you a story for this one! oy!

(in a nutshell)
I saw a fun card over at Hero Arts blog and it totally inspired me!  I started working on my idea at once, then realized I needed to get some DT cards done.  "Yikes, what are you doing Maria, playing with this design when you have work to do?"  haha  So I pushed this beauty aside and set to work only to find out later that I totally flubbed my one DT card, forgetting to use the proper elements to the challenge.  Eek, what to do, what to do!   Then I remember this card, plucked off the crocheted flower and use my nesties to make the layered flower.   There's more to this story but you get the picture!   oy!

Ok, so let's get on with life, shall we?!  Today bring us a new Digital Tuesday challenge to use die cuts somewhere on your creation!  Which you can see I DID, with my scrunched up flower.  Pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the fabulous DT creations and read about the prize info from this week's sponsor, My Grafico Digital Tuesday Challenge blog!
