Happy Sunday Everyone!! Since I have my parents here this weekend, this will be a short post...

Today is another Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge!!

Today's challenge hostess is the sweet and talented Peggy Sue!!

Peggysue chose the verse:
Matthew 16:23 Jesus turned and said to Peter, "Get behind me, Satan!"

 Peggysue chose the challenge:
Use versamark or same color ink on the same color of paper (e.g., purple ink on purple paper) for a tone on tone background somewhere on your card.

Here is my take on the challenge:

 For my card I used tone on tone for my bird corners around the sentiment and also on the background of the designer paper using the bird corners stamp from ODBD.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs: Eternity, Bird and Butterfly Corners
Paper: Prima Anna Lee
Accessories:  Prima Mandarin roses,  Spellbinders Grand Caliber, ,Martha Stewart Shell border punch, Blue silk ribbon from May Arts, Bow Easy, Wild orchid mini rose stems,  Parisian Accents, K and Co Butterfly sticker

 For more inspiration for the Stampin in Christ Challenge, please visit my dt sisters:
Grace, Linda, Lisa, Peggysue, Randi (on leave), Meisje, Kristine, Sabrina, Marilynn and  Rebecca.
