Fading Flowers

The grass withers. the flowers fades, but the Word of our God stands forever! Isaiah 40:8
Close Up
The challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ  (Challenge #103 2 Tim 1:7) was to "try something that you might have been AFRAID to try before now, examples... a new technique, a new color combo, a new style (CAS if you are a Layered stamper, or reversed)." My fear was chunky glitter. . .or glass shreds. . . Stampendous has some new products out that are so beautiful and fun, I just had to try. . . I also love paper flowers and have been working on various techniques, but found a set of Donna Salazar's Rose Creations Spellbinders dies recently and experimented.
