Bloggers Challenge - Sketch Challenge

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday, thanks for stopping by today!  This week I gave the Bloggers Challenge Members the following sketch to use as inspiration.  When I created the sketch I had something in mind, but wouldn't you know it, I sat down to actually work with the sketch and "creative constipation" set it.  I *dislike* when that happens! 

So a few hours later, after cutting into many different pieces of card stock/pattern paper, and pulling out images, I came of with the following card using Websters Pages, and images from  Our Daily Bread Designs.

What a pretty card--well worth the work you put into it. LOVE that kiwi colored lace--or whatever you want to call it--it really makes the card for me. Also love your butterflies--aren't those the greatest!
Getting the Code for mine too--it will be up soon.
Hugs, Nola

So grateful to hear that creative constipation happens to the creator of the challenge! I have to say this is one of the most gorgeous cards I've seen -- beautiful verse from Mother Tereas and such a soft, reverent feeling card overall. Gorgeous!

Lisa, this piece is really amazing! I love the butterflies. The lave in the center...are those bingo numbers? Unique! I love the flowers on the left. The printing behind the quote is a beautiful way to pull it all together.
