Faith, Hope and Love

Hello, it's Bridget here with a card using the versatile and beautiful set Prim Blessings!
Bright yellow sunflowers are so cheerful, they're great for any occasion,
 but especially perfect for cards of encouragement.
I wanted to attach the tag on the sunflower so I drew in a stem and then added a bow and button.
 The flower is colored with copics and popped up and the flower center has been sponged with ink and popped up for another layer of dimension.
I cut a tiny heart from one of the other accent images to cover up an ink smudge!  It made me think of this verse from the Bible:
 Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. 
 (1 Peter 4:8)
Love doesn't excuse or hide wrongs, but it does help us forgive -
this little heart was very forgiving in dealing with my mistake!
I used my Scor-pal to score lines at the top of the card base and
a Fiskars Corner Rounder for the bottom edges.
Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope it's a great weekend for you!

Oh sweet friend, I am laughing but not at you, but at the situation *giggle* I can't begin to tell you how many times this has happened to me (and of course always when you're almost done). I love the stem drawn in and the tag hanging off - it's so, so cute.

I have had to resort to this trick many, many times, Bridget, but your little heart looks like it belongs just where you've placed it! How creative to draw the this darling design! Hugs!
