Be Faithful in Small Things

Have I ever mentioned I have a paper addiction?  On one of my last visits to Archivers, I ran across the new Basic Grey Out of Print pattern paper, and somehow it found it's way in my basket!  I think this has got to be one of my favorite collections for BG, the prints are so my style!  For inspiration I used Card Patterns Sketch 123, along with the theme Something Borrowed or Something Blue at The Kraft Journal.

I stamped the Sweet William Flower from Our Daily Bread Designs in Black Archival on the Basic Grey paper, and die cut with Spellbinders Blossom 3, then scrunched and pinched the petals until they formed a blossom to my liking.  The sentiment is from ODBD's Faith Set, stamped in Black Archival using a SAMJ, on a scrap of the Out of Print paper.  Good thing I had my SAMJ still in place, as there was some crud covering one of the letters (must have been in my ink pad) and I was able to stamp again and fix it.

Stamps - Our Daily Bread Designs  Sweet William, Faith
Ink - Ranger Black Archival, Distress Ink Walnut Stain
Card Stock - Kraft, Black
