Tutti Designs - Wedding Car?

Hello, my friends!

It's Monday, and I'm back with a new Tutti Designs share!

When is a Wedding Car just a car?
When you use the Wedding Car Die on a masculine card like this! 
You'll find it HERE.

I think I'll have to put this one away for my husband's birthday!
I really like this kraft and black patterned paper.
The back side is all kraft.
I cut the patterned piece to fit the black card base.
Then I centered the Stitched Oval Die on the back side, and cut it out.
I inked the edges and then adhered both pieces in place on the card front. 
I cut the Wedding Car from black cardstock and adhered it to the center of the oval.
Finally, I added two mini rhinestones to the weels, and three larger rhinestones in the corner. 



Here's a closer look at the fabulous die:


Other Materials Used:
Papers: Colorbok Craft Paper - Cosmopolitan;
Ink: Distress Ink - Walnut Stain;
Bling: Crafts - Rhinestones.

Tutti Designs Dies Used:



Stitched Nesting Ovals

I added a slight curl to the tips of the banner to add some dimension.


To finish it off I added two little ribbon embellishments.

Mustard Seed Faith Challenge - God's Lullabies To Us

Sunday Blessings to you, my friends!

It's time for a new challenge over at Mustard Seed Faith Challenge Blog

The theme this week is "The Psalms as God's Lullabies To Us". 
Peggysue has a short devotional on the subject over on the blog.

I really love that as a description of the Psalms! 
Are you familiar with the Psalms? 
I think Psalm 23 is probably the most well known
but I love them all. 
Several years ago I had to have a major surgery and I was really scared. 
I pulled out my Bible and started reading the Psalms.
It really was a lullaby for me...and calmed all my fears.
I was able to face my surgery with peace.

If you're ever scared, or worried, or feeling alone...
...or if you're just feeling overwhelmed with life and the world today...
...just dig into the Psalms! 
Feel God speaking the Lullaby to you! 

For the challenge this week:

Create a Baby Card / Something With a Psalm as a Lullaby

I used some lovely items from Gecko Galz to create my card.



The image has a little mustard colored bird on it,
just for my friend Annabel! :o)


Materials Used:
Image: Gecko Galz - Baby Mine Digital Collage Set;
Bling: Crafts - Mini Rhinestones;
Seam Binding: My Sewing Stash;
Doily: My Stash.

So head on over to the

There you can meet the rest of the Design Team
and see what they've created for the challenge this week. 

Then check out the simple rules, make something,
and link it up!

I can't wait to see what you make! :o)
