Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge

Todays card is for the Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge. Kristine chose Matthew 6:19-21, a very powerful Scripture to challenge us to examine our lives and motives. The challenge was to use some of your treasures that you had be saving. She must have been looking in my treasure box. :) I had this wonderful flourish that I have been "saving" along with the pretty piece of gold ribbon. I chose the partridge in pear tree image because is suppose to represent Christ. After coloring with watercolors and using chalk to shade around it I mounted it off center on the dark gold paper and attached pearls to the corners. I cut out the little tag and mounted the sentiment then attached the ribbon with more pearls. I added a few little stickle dots on each side. Then I used glitter and stickles to encrust the flourish with gold and tied a piece of ribbon on the center. I mounted that all onto a piece of dp. Used some brown and yellow to age the edges of the white base card and then attached all onto it. For the inside I used the MS ziz zag punch on the dp then added a piece of the dark paper to the edge. I used stickles to dot across top and bottom. On the opposite side I mounted the rest of the sentiment and added the piece of ribbon and then added a few dots of the stickle to that also.
