HAPPY MONDAY MORNING! Many are home for President's Day today! Enjoy your day!!!
This morning I have two cards to share with you!! Two cards using three challenges. The challenges this past week at Splitcoast were, oh, so much fun!!! Both of my cards were made using stamps from Our Daily Bread Designs. You can find their stamps here.

The first card uses Splitcoasts TLC207 Cut It Out Challenge and the sketch Challenge SC215. I used the sets Keep My Lamp Burning and On Eagle's Wings from Our Daily Bread designs. Since eagels are so strong and wild, I wanted to make it a shabby chic card with a distressed look. I sponged the background for the sky using Pacific Point, Baja Breeze, and Sky Blue, stamped on the verse, and did the cracked glass technique. The eagle was cut out and layered for a 3D look.

The second card uses this past week's Limited Supply Challenge hosted by Judy and the stampset May God Hold You from Our Daily Bread designs. Her challenge was to stretch yourself... change 2 elements on your project that you normally wouldn't do to make it different than all of the other projects in your gallery. I literally stretched!! This card is tall and narrow!! This is the first tall and narrow card I have ever done!! i also did not do any sewing, which I have done alot of lately, and added chipboard!! I actually love this chipboard from Blue Awnig!!

What a beautiful job on both cards. The second one has an "old world" feel to it. The scroll work looks like the scroll on your sidebars.
