Each of Us is God's Special Work of Art

I made this card for a new challenge I just found when visiting the blog of my stamping friend Annette -  it's called Pinspired - and they choose an image from Pinterest for the challenge inspiration.  Here is this week's inspiration:
And here's my inspired card:
I used my brandy new hibiscus die that I got from My Favorite Things along with my brandy new stitched mat rectangle from Lil' Inker Designs.

I'm also entering this into Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes.

My next card was made for the Cas-ual Fridays Challenge - to use Kraft and text.
I used stamps from the Ocean Bound set by Waltzingmouse.  I stamped the frame, sentiments and anchor on a piece of kraft paper, cut it out and layered it over the kraft card base with foam dots.  It's always good to have a masculine card on hand!
