Yesterday, Today and Forever

Today at Our Daily Bread Designs the Shining the Light Challenge team is bringing you some beautiful creations for Easter.  It seems hard to believe it's just a week away! 

For me, Easter is the Cross, and how Jesus purchased my freedom in such a costly way;  I am incredibly grateful!  The truth that He is the same yesterday, today and forever holds me firmly with confidence.  He has shown me in the most ultimate way that I can depend on Him.  So I combined three sets from ODBD for this Easer themed card.  The cross and dove image is from Confirmation, the Verse is from Scripture Collection Four, and Ironworks Borders

I stamped the cross in Cameo Coral on Sahara Sand paper, and then embossed the verse in silver overtop.    I also embossed the Ironworks border onto some Cameo Coral paper, and then just trimmed out the corners placing them on the Floral Accent Shapeabilities. I paired this with this pretty metallic paper from SEI called Claire , sometimes when you look at it it shimmers silver, other times almost gold, so, I added some highlighting to the dove etc. with my Stardust glitter pen. 


Above you can see I added another Fancy Floral Shapeabilities with pearls, and below you can see the ribbon treatment more closely.


Some ruffled loops of silk ribbon adhered to the underside of the main image, and a small silk bow. 


So, we'd like to invite you in on the challenge, create a card with an Easter theme and link it to the ODBD Blog post.  Each week a $15 prize to the ODBD Store are awarded, and if you use ODBD stamps you can also earn the Shining the Light award too.
