Stampin' Sisters in Christ & Allsorts Challenges

My Card is for Stampin' Sisters in Christ & Allsorts Challenges. Stampin' Sisters in Christ scripture was II Corinthians 5:17 and the challenge was to make a new born card.Allsorts was this great sketch and to use up some of your stash. MY good friend's daughter is having a baby in a few weeks so this was a perfect chance to get her shower card done! Could you tell its a girl?? :) She loves lavender so I chose 3 different lavender prints to use. I love easel cards and I wanted something special for her. I stamped the image from SU nursery set and mounted it on a darker lavender cut out with reverse circle nestie and punched holes around it. I stitched the blocks on and stamped with a flourish and then glittered it up some. Mounted the image on foam dots, put the sentiment on, wrapped the ribbon around opposite corners and put a second little lamb in the corner. On the bottom part I punched one of the prints with the MS hearts and then stitched down rows of the three prints I ran a little strip of ribbon down each side. I mounted the scripture attached the back end with foam dots to raise it up and fasten down on the front end, so it would be slightly elevated to view it easier. I stamped some flourishes and glittered them also.
