ODBDSLC245- Color Challenge

Good morning!
Yay! It's time for another ODBD challenge.  Today it is a color challenge (see photo below my card for colors).  Color challenges are one of my personal favorites.

ODBD stamps used:Fragrance, Mini Tag Sentiments 

I started by stamping the Fragrance blossoms on white cardstock and die cuting with the inner die of Layered Lacey Squares and before I lifted the die, I embossed it and inked the open spaces.  I cut another light pink layer then the outer Lacey Square in a dark pink. I then cheated a bit and cut the outer Lacey square twice with white, cut an extra scallop from each side of the extra square and made my white square larger all the way around with the extra scallop on each side, sponged the edges with pink and Cut a square to fit just inside the scallops to cover any cut lines.  I mounted this square onto a folder square card base.
For my flowers, I stamped the front bottom flower twice and colored then cut out petals to pop up to make my flower really 3-D.  I then used some Prills (by US Art Quest) for my centers.  I stamped the sentiment on a scrap piece of white and die cut with the Mini Tags.  I sponges some pink on the edges before mounting under the large pink bow.
Images is colored with Copic Markers.

Do your know some fragrance scriptures?  Well, there are several about smells and especially in the Song of Solomon but the one I am thinking of is in Philippians 4:18-19 It's when Paul is speaking to one of the churches about their giving.
"Indeed I have all and abound.  I am full, having received from Epaphroditus the things sent from you, a sweet smelling aroma, an acceptable sacrifice, well pleasing to God.  And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus."  It WAS a sacrifice, they were (some of them) barely scrapping by but they gave to Paul because paul was spreading the Gospel where they could not.  Think of it...according to GOD'S riches...the creator of the universe, are you kidding me, wow!  It may be a sacrifice to give (and when you give, give as unto God).  But God is faithful and He will provide.  Plus, your reward is waiting for you in heaven where NO ONE can take it away from you!  Jesus said, (Matthew 6: 19-21) "Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.  For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."
Where is YOUR treasure?
