New challenge at Meljen's Designs

The challenge this week over at Meljen's Designs is "In A Word", [use a 1 word sentiment]. I decided to use this Meljen's word digital image as the sentiment and focus of my circle card. For my card base I cut out the [attached at the top] circles from plain white card stock, just a touch smaller, then this pre cut DP by Little Yellow Bicycle. The sentiment image was cut out using a Spellbinder die. The flourishes and layered flower were cut using  Tim Holtz's dies. Lots of distress inking and some faux stitching too. I added a few pearls to the sentiment corners and to the flower center as well.
I have so much to be grateful for: I live in a wonderful country; I have a loving family; I serve an awesome God, who showers his blessings upon me continuously. I hope that you will take some time to reflect on the good things in your life. Maybe then you can draw a one word sentiment out of those reflections and make a project of your own to share with us on the Meljen's blog.
Until next time.

Hi,Nancy! What a beautiful card all in blue! And if you could only pick one word, then I think the word GRATEFUL really sums it all up perfectly.
