Good morning!
This will be a two week challenge because
we have a special Anniversary week coming up with
 another special challenge (and more)!
Be sure to look for it starting Monday, March 14th.

Today I'm using the new Keys die, it goes well with the new Key To Happiness but also goes very well with the Key To Heaven stamp set from last year!!
ODBD paper: Blushing Rose Collection

I used the Flourish Label Borders stamp set in brown (on the green paper) and green (on the Vanilla paper) then die cut each with Vintage Flourish Patter and Vintage Labels dies.   I then cut my background from the Rose paper (from Blushing Rose) with the Vintage Flourish Pattern background die and glued it to a vanilla panel then to another green pattern paper from the pack.  I then sponged with Walnut distress ink especially the corners and added my popped up labels after wrapping my base with light sage green sheer ribbon.  I cut my keys, cross and heart then sponged them lightly and hung all on the key ring, made a double bow with the ribbon and that's it!

Thank you for visiting today 

Thought for the day:
31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior. 32 Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.
Ephesians 4: 31-32

Oh how I love the soft beauty of this card but what puts it over the top is the detail of the cross with the key which so spectacularly highlights the verse. Thoughtfully and beautifully done
