Hi Friends!
I have a "SURPRISE" post today!!!!!!! I'm even posting MUCH LATER in the day than usual! I've been working away on  this card today!

  Did you know that FLOURISHES is having their September Release "Party?" There's LOADS of activity! Blog hops, giveaways & a challenge! For all the information on it, check here: http://flourishes.org/blog/  You can use your Flourishes Stamps which will be counted twice BUT, I don't have any Flourishes stamps, YET!!!!! (I've admired Flourishes stamps for FOREVER! Just hadn't gotten any!)  But, you don't HAVE TO use Flourishes Stamps! How FUN IS THAT???? Then ANYONE can play! I'm using their "Any Which Way Sketch Challenge."
AND I've combined this  Challenge with Patter's challenge  over at: http://triplethescraps.blogspot.com/  Hymn #11- Great Is Thy Faithfulness Challenge.
Here is my card for BOTH  THREE challenges! (Moxie Fab Challenge too! See below!)  
When I think of this song I automatically picture myself in church, with everyone singing beautifully!What can be more beautiful than the stained glass windows in a church? I dug this stamp out of my stash. I bought it AGES ago & haven't used it, till now! AND for the colors, I thought since the song is about our LOVING SAVIOR, He deserves ROYAL COLORS! RICH JEWEL TONES! So, I went with Purples, Red, & Gold!
Here's what I used:
Sparkling H2O's-used on the window, on Water Color Paper.
Cuttle bug folders- Victoria & Grace's Frame.
Hymn- copied from my hymnal.
Gold Krylon Pen.
Walmart ribbon- Purple & Metallic Web
(The Metallic Web made me think of the Crown of Thorns.)
Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Ink.
Window Stamp- Stampington, Arched Glass M4742
This card came out MUCH LARGER than I usually make because the Window Stamp was much larger than usual. My card came out to be: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.
What do you think? Let me know???? Would LOOOOOVE to hear from you!
I'll be posting again SOON!
P.S. ANOTHER CHALLENGE: Moxie Fab Focal Point Challenge! Here:
