My Card is for Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge: Scripture from the wonderful story of Esther, 4:14 : Use a time piece or something denoting time
Just Us Girls Challenge: Use rasplberry, coral, chocolate and ivory
Creative Corner: A new technique

Creatalicious Challenge: A little something
Pixie Dust: Charmed

This past week held both tragedy and celebration. My friends brother was going to town and hit ice the car rolled and he was killed. Another friends daughter had her first baby this week. When I read the challenge I was thinking about the past week and how no matter what is going on God is in control so the scripture in Ecclesiastes seemed fitting. I cut the raspberry with the nestie and then ran it thru the cuttlebug with a dotted swiss folder. I used a stamp that has 3 time pieces on it and lightly stamped in over the scripture along with a flourish and added the key charm then mounted to raspberry. I added that key charm because God holds the key to time not we humans. I have never made a step card before and it sure took me some time to figure out those measurements! lol I used ivory and then added chocolate to each side after I ran thru the cuttlebug with the swirl folder, added the lace down the center and made the bow with a gold button in the center. Used the MS punch for the chocolate and mounted on the coral for the front fold. Added a chocolate embossed with the swirls on the second layer and coral which I also punched with the MS punch for the last layer. I made two flowers out of crepe paper which I colored and gathered. On the front one I added a clock as the center. On the second flower I added a coral punched flower center with a pearl and attached to the second layer.. I added several other time pieces and coral flowers with stickle centers.

Davi -- this is amazing -- I love the colors you have chosen and it is perfect for the challenge. I would never have thought of using the MS punch in brown -- I always think "white lace" -- yours is a great idea!
