Happy Sunday!!! I hope you are all enjoying your morning. Today I have a post to share with you which is a real honor. Just last Sunday a new challenge begin which is a Bible verse challenge called Stampin Sisters in Christ.

As a design team member of Our Daily Bread Designs, I was so excited to be asked to be the first guest designer on the week when Our Daily Bread Designs is the sponsor! It is an honor to share my love for crafting and Jesus for this challenge! Thanks for this awesome opportunity girls. I am so honored. Last week Lisa inspired us with this verse:

Then Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go
hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty." John 6:35 (NIV)

In keeping with this verse, the design team challenged its readers to create a card or project with a food theme. It did not need to be religious but you are free to do so. The verse in the Fruit of the Spirit stamp set from Our Daily Bread Designs coordinated so well with this week's inspirational verse that I knew I had to use it. God's promise is to always provided for our needs. "Taste and see that the Lord is good. Psalm 3:4" I colored the image with prisma color pencils and gamsol. I then used Paper Tole to give it dimension. Gold glitter was added for some extra sparkle. The verse is embossed in gold. To give some added elegance, I used Gold Glossy Cardstock on the borders and gold metallic thread for the sewing. The border on the bottom is created with the Spellbinders Renaissance Border.


Card Recipe:

Stamps: Fruit of the Spirit from Our Daily Bread Designs

Paper: Purple DP (scrap from I think DCWV), Glossy Gold Paper, Purple CS, Vanilla

Accessories: Rennaissance Hearts border from Spellbinders, Spellbinders, Circles, Prisma color pencils and gamsol, Hero Arts Pearls, metallic gold thread and sewing machine, Swiss Dots folder

_______________________________________________________ I hope you have a chance to join in this challenge!!!
