Goodness and Mercy- C4C and More!

Happy Saturday!   It is time for another Crazy 4 Challenge with the Crazies!   Check out the C4C blog for more challenge details with the crazies at Crazy 4 Challenges(C4C176).  

Get Negative! 
Use the negative portion 
of your die on your card

For my card I am using Verve's newly released Surely Goodness stamp set and Verve's Cut Above Goodness Flowers die set.  I decided to keep this card very CAS.  I started with ivory card stock.  I die cut two larger flowers.  I layered the top and bottom portions of the card together and flipped the larger flower image over and inked up the back  of the stamp to stamp and have a solid color background to the flower.  I then flipped the stamp over and inked the outline portion.  I used copics to add some more coloring and finished with some yellow glitter Since these dies have registration holes, I used some strategically place black gems to cover.  I actually only have two registration holes on the card. Some of the gems were just added for continuity.  I stamped a couple of more smaller outline flowers over the scripture in golden yellow.  

Check out what the rest of the team did with this week's challenge!
