Hello - TESC#160

Good Morning Delightful Friends and Family! (or good afternoon or evening, whatever the case may be) Looks like another sunny day here on the north coast, yay!! However there is rain in the forecast for the weekend.  That is not good, we have our annual church barbecue planned for Sunday afternoon and on Saturday is our local Pony Express Days (parade, booths, etc) so rain would really not be a good thing.  Please pray that it will rain Saturday night, that would solve everything.

Here is the challenge sketch from Taylored Expressions (definitely a challenge for me)

TESC#160 (#3 for me for this challenge)

Here are the ingredients:  Paper-Echo Park Summer Days Collection Kit (the tabs on the right top corner are stickers from the kit); Stamp: Taylored Expressions (Love Grows Here set) Ink: Memento tuxedo black; The tree was colored with Copic Markers and the centers were embellished with Ranger Liquid Pearls; The green butterfly was paper pieced, can you tell it is flying off the Spellbinder Standard Circle die?
The base of the card is Bazzill (all card stock) and the second piece of white was embossed with the Polka Dot folder from ProvoCraft.  The zig zags were created by the EK Success border punch Zig Zag Stitching and I punched both sides of a 1" strip of paper from the Echo Park collection to create it. The button and the floss are from Making Memories. I've used my Cuttlebug to emboss and diecut.

Thanks for visiting and leaving a delightful comment, that is so nice of you!!

But when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, that your charitable deed may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly. Matthew 6:3-4
