The Lord is my Shepherd

I came across a tutorial for a post-it easel card at StampARTic, and I really wanted to try and make one myself. I had been planning a "Psalm 23" project for a while, and for this card I pull out my stamps and started creating.

It took some time to make it, but I liked the result.

These are the supplies I've used:

Paper: The card base is made of Bazzill Bling paper. I've used 3 different patterned papers: Kort & Godt "Fryd Oliven", Fancy Pants "Wishful Thinking Corsage" and Melissa Frances "Eleanor".

Stamps: "Psalm 23" from Our Daily Bread Designs stamped with Tsukineko Memento "Bamboo Leaves" Ink, and I used "Peeled Paint" Distress Ink from Ranger to distress around the paper. "Hold them Dear" and "Lamb" by Heartfelt Creations on the front, stamped with Tsukineko "Versafine Onyx Black" and colored them with Letraset Promarkers. I did some distressing with "Fired Brick" Distress ink from Ranger. For the inside I made a background by using the following Ranger reinkers: "Shabby Shutter", "Peeled Paint", "Crushed Olive" and "Forest Moss". I then stamped HCPC 3324 Daisy Patch Swirls PreCut Set from Heartfelt Creations on the background with Ranger Distress Embossing Ink. I added Bridal Embossing Powder and heated it up with my heatgun.

Dies: Curved Rectangles, Labels Three and Classic Ovals LG by Spellbinders.

Embellishments: Basic Grey "Bling it!" rhinestones and "Swish" half pearl embellishments. Flowers from Kort&Godt.

This is how it looks laying down:
On the inside there's room for a little note.

I'm adding this card to the following challenges:
Sew Many Challenges: Ovals.
Stamps&Fun=Creativity: Use shapes and/or diecuts.
Stampin' for the Weekend: "What  a Cutie"
Simon Says Stamps Challenge: Dies to Die for
Creatalicious Challenges: Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly Challenge: Creature comforts
