Count Me In….on the Divine Design Challenge

Oh, I have so wanted to do this and now I’m gonna.  Several bloggers have made a commitment to offer a card on the 8th of each month that includes a scripture that has special meaning to them.  You can read more about the challenge on Lori Craig’s blog here.  She lists all of the Scripture Chicks and their blogs; their cards are amazing and the stories of their inspiration give glory to God.  I’m so delighted to have a card to share today, and I know that this project over the course of the year will move me closer to spiritual goals that I have.   I’m starting a little bit late, so I’m behind, but I try to make up both the January and the February cards.




















I’ve had this stamp in my stash for some time and I always smile when I think of this verse.  When I pulled the verse out, I immediately thought of the French Flair background stamp that I had yet to use.  The card is very simple, with a gray base card popped up on a dark gray panel and topped with design paper onto which I stamped the French Flair background stamp, in a second generation of Stazon Stone Gray.  The verse is popped up on a dark gray panel topped with a light gray panel with the verse.  I tied a wide satin gray Offray ribbon in a bow positioned to the right and lastly added the antique brass brads, previously hoarded but quite at home here – I was saving them for a special occasion!   Some time this week I’ll be sure to upload this to Splitcoaststampers to gallery where you can see the other cards. The SCS Gallery for Bible Verse Challenge – BVC08 can be seen here.

Stamps:  Stampendous, SU – French Flair; Paper – Bazzill, Die Cuts With A View – Wedding; Ink – Stazon Stone Gray; Ribbon – Offray Gray; Antique Gold Brads – K & Co.

    So many times I think cards are such a waste of time because they never will be used or they don’t really say what I want to say. This is awesome – and what an awesome and inspring site. Already added Lori’s blog to my new blog file.

    You can never go wrong with God’s words.
