Amazing Grace!

Thanks, Dawn for a great limited supplies challenge(LSC228)!!! Today we are to crop it!!! Take an image and cut it down. I chose to use the new
ODBD release Amazing Grace song lyrics.

I chose to crop the bird image. This bird image from Sing to the Lord has a longer limb with flowers at both ends. I wanted just the flowers from the dp on the card. I cut out those flowers to keep my card simple and the focus on the verses.

I am using basicgray Marrakech dp. I also chose to stamp the Amazing Grace verse onto a piece of the solid distress paper in the back of the pad. I colored my bird using copic markers. I finished my card with just touches of gold pearl domes.
