I made this card for three challenges. First and foremost I created this to honor our queen this week... Cheryl (QFTD180)! Cheryl is my dear sweet friend and one of the most talented stampers I know. I am so honored to have this opportunity to case her. I chose this beautiful CAS card to case : using her basic layout and embossing the background with a Tim Holtz Brick Wall background but using my corner rounder as a border punch on three sides (CAS237) and brayering real leaves in tangerine tango and green galore (challenge TLC446) and then adding the Two step Butterfly from Our Daily Bread Designs.
The sentiment is from Apples and was chosen specifically for Cheryl!! Anyone who knows Cheryl knows that Faith is something she has a great deal of...if it would not have been this quote, it would have been her favorite verse: Proverbs 3: 5,6!! Thanks for being such a dear friend and inspiration in so many ways Cheryl!!
Congrats Cheryl!! You are so deserving!!
Thanks for looking!!

Oh, my, Chris! This is amazing! I am in awe of how you brayered the leaves...and on the embossed layer that you inked up...I love when you do that...such a great technique! And the butterfly is beautiful along with the sweet little pearl! And, yes, that sentiment is perfect. There is no happiness without faith!
Thank you so much for making this beautiful card in honor of my being QFTD this week! But more than anything, you have blessed me and honored me so with your friendship! There is nothing better than having a friend like you who shares faith in our Lord! Hugs, my sweet friend!

I love what you've done. AND love the brick ef, the butterfly and the sentiment.
