Punch It

One of my fav. blogs would be Littlebear Crafts and from there...I was introduced to the Sir Stampalot Challenge Blog which runs on a monthly basis. So far, I've not really taken the time to ever compete in any of their contests, but this month I decided to go for it.
The challenge for June is actually very simple and straightforward....just use punches. & punches I did use!

This card was made with the intent of an encouragement card for a friend who's dad is going through some health difficulties.

I stamped my stained glass cross stamp from Heart & Soul Rubber Stamps using silver ink and then outlined the border and cross with a black gel pen. Then I noticed that the silver isn't showing up so I outlined it with a silver gel pen. Now it looks great!
All the flowers are punched using various brands - fiskar, Stampin' Up! and one is a no name brand.
The inside sentiment is the Lord is my Shepard (also a Heart & Soul Rubber Stamp) with two pairs of the small footprints (Fiskar squeeze punch).

Have a wonderful and blessed weekend everyone!
