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.
