ODBDSLC239-Inspiration Challenge

Good morning all!
His mercies are new EVERY morning!
Today starts a new challenge at ODBD.  You can get inspiration from the photo below.

I cut the frame from two sizes of the Vintage Label dies, cut the quatrefoil die and cut it down to fit inside the frame and backed it with lavender paper.
I cut a white rectangle and used an embossing folder on it then sewed around the edge.  I foam taped the frame up onto it.  I stamped, cut and colored the butterflies and flowers (fussy cut the lilac flowers) and then cut the little flowers from the birds and nest set and formed them.  I arranged all of these plus some sheer ribbon around the edge of the frame.  I mounted the front to some pattern paper then to a white folded card!

To see more inspiration please visit my design team sisters:
Robin (That's me)GracieDianaElizabethPaula, and Chris

Psalm 145:9
The Lord is good to all, and His tender mercies are over all His works.
Our Father God, creator of all heaven and earth and everything in the earth, above the earth and below it. Can you imagine, every herb of the field, tree, flower, every smell, every color!  He keeps every atom together gives every breath!
This same God sent His only Son to die on the cross for our sins. We can have the righteousness of Christ in God's eyes just by believing in His son Jesus and that He died and rose again from the dead.  Salvation is a free gift from God.
Jesus said "I am the Way the, the Truth, and the Life, No one comes to the Father except through me". John 14:6 
Thanks for visiting today.

I agree, Robin, that your post is beautifully written! God's Word will not return to Him void, and praise God that His mercies are new each and every morning!

I love your take on the inspiration and the beautiful butterflies and the lilacs! Stunning with your stitching and dies, right down to the added bitty flowers you've added with the pearl centers! Gorgeous, sweet friend! Hugs!
