Blessings to You From Word Art Wednesday

Happy middle-of-the-week everyone!  It's Wednesday again, and time for another great challenge at Word Art Wednesday, and this is the perfect week to play along and share your talents with us because the prize this week is a $15 Gift Certificate to the FABOLOUS Freckled Fawn.  For those of you who know how wonderful the Freckled Fawn is, I'm really hoping that you will all come by and enter for the chance to win this AMAZING prize.  I sure wish I could enter to win.  I would be SO blessed to have you come by and share with us this week! 
And if you happen to own any Freckled Fawn products and want to use them in this week's challenge, just leave a comment to let me know, and those entries will go into a special Freckled Fawn give-away from me. Just stop by Word Art Wednesday Challenge Blog this week and link up your art with us. We will be SO blessed to have you share. And.....don't forget that fabulous prize!
The seam binding I used on this card is from V's Sweet Ideas, and the tag I used was from JoAnn's Crafts.  All the little flowers I used are from Michael's Dollar Bins.  The green one used to be white, but I used Glimmer Mist to make it green.  My card base is My Mind's Eye paper from the Bramble Rose collection that I picked up at Michael's using a 50% off coupon, so I got that entire pad of beautiful paper for about $2.50 if I recall.  I do get lucky with bargains, I must admit.  I am SO blessed.  I touched the edges with a mossy green acrylic coating, and of course couldn't resist some machine stitching, and the lovely Prima lace.  I think that's about everything!
 
I'm entering my card into the following challenges this week:
 
Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge Blog - Challenge:  Backgrounds - I love this patterned paper from My Mind's Eye because it looks like an old barn, a quilt, or vintage wallpaper.  I thought it was such a lovely background pattern for my card this week.
 
Loves Rubber Stamps Challenge Blog - Challenge #48 - The Colors of Spring - The stamp I used is not from Loves Rubber Stamps.   I used a digital image from our challenge this week at Word Art Wednesday.  I'm just happy to play along and share my art.
 
Our Daily Bread Designs Blog - Use Hymns or Scriptures - It's always a blessing to use scripture on my cards and projects, and I also LOVE using vintage sheet music and hymns on my crafting projects as well.  This challenge is right "up my alley" so to speak.
 
Thank you so much for visiting me today.  Please do consider taking a moment to link up and share the art you create this week at Word Art Wednesday in our Anyting Goes challenge for the $15 Freckled Fawn prize.
 
Have a safe and blessed week.  My cup runneth over!
 
Karen
