And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

ODBDSLC149 Scripture or Hymn

Hello all!  It's finally beginning to feel like Spring...in fact we've already had some pretty warm temperatures, but I'm not complaining!  LOL!  My daily walks with Kody have been wonderful!  

Here it is...Tuesday again and time for another Shining the Light Challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs!


This week's challenge is:
Use Scripture or Hymns on your creation

To make the challenge even more fun, we'll be giving away a PRIZE, a $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs Store!  Entries for the prize must be submitted by Sunday, April 21 at 8 p.m. EST.  One winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday.

While it is not required to use Our Daily Bread Designs images and sentiments on your creations, we would love to see them if you have them.  As a way of recognizing those who do use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, we will again be choosing three or more of our participants for the Shining the Light Award.  In order to qualify for this award, you must use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by Sunday, April 21st at 8 p.m. EST.  If you upload your creations to Splitcoaststampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword ODBDSLC150.  When creating your posts on blogs, please include a link to the challenge.  Thanks you!

Using scripture on hand made cards is such a wonderful way to spread God's word to family and friends!  Here is my card for this week's challenge:


Creative Nugget:  I just love how this verse from Hebrews reminds us that no matter what we are going through, God is right there with us.  The Romantic Floral Designs are a beautiful way to frame any verse or sentiment on your cards.  The larger frame was stamped in VersaMark ink and embossed with detail white embossing powder on Groovy Guava card stock, and the smaller frame was stamped with Groovy Guava ink on Vintage Cream card stock.  Both frames were cut with matching Labels Twenty-Six Dies and sponged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  The verse from the Scripture Collection 10 stamp set was stamped inside the the smaller frame with Early Espresso ink.  The card front was created by stitching Graphics 45 papers to Early Espresso card stock and a Vintage Cream card base.  A Martha Stewart punch was used to make a border across the bottom of the card.  The little border down the side was made by trimming a row from the new Quatrefoil Pattern Die.  A rolled flower, organdy ribbon and several pearls finish the card.


The following materials used on this card are available at the Our Daily Bread Designs Store:
