God's Blessings

Hello, Olga here to share this weeks card I made using the fabulous papers from Paper Temptress.
The stamps I used are from Stampin Up and sorry but several years old, I just love this one and how it colors on the Neenah Solar White paper.
 I layered it with some of the purple from the Heartfelt Creations Purple Package.  I then using my scor pal, stamped the sentiment at the bottom then embossed lines to enclose it. I cut the large square out using Spellbinders Capitulating Squares Die.  Stamped the image, cut it out using Spellbinders Classic Squares Large, then put everything together.  I did use Prisma Color Pencils to color my image.  I also added glitter to the bird, butterfly and flowers, sorry it didn't show up very good in this picture.  Added the bling in the corners and a bow to finish my card.  Thanks for taking time to drop by, hope you like and be sure and check out the Paper Temptress blog.
