Strong and Courageous

Well, I hope your weekend is off to a good start.  Our daughter had Friday off so we did a little girl-time shopping together, and now we have Monday off (Victoria Day here) and the boys have Tuesday off too, so it's long weekend time for us.  We've had 3 days of beautiful rain too, that's been so needed, it will be so wonderfully green when the sun comes out, and all the annuals I planted and the perennials will love it too! 

Today the Our Daily Bread Challenge Team has a new challenge for you.  This one is all about the sentiment.  The challenge is to make the sentiment the focus of your card - and that's so easy with ODBD stamps and the beautiful verses and sentiments.  I used the Scripture Collection 3 and the Vine Borders for my focal image on Basic Grey Green at Heart paper, with gold embossing.  Such a powerful and encouraging verse too isn't it?   I have some wonderful *eye-candy* inspiration for you too, from Amy Atlas Events website for today's IC challenge over at SCS too.  Link is page 49 a Moroccan table spread of yummy goodies. 


I also did some rolled ribbon flowers to accent with some die cut branches.  At this angle below you can see the verse better. 


So, come on and join us!  Use a verse or sentiment as your focal point on your creation.  Keyword for online galleries is ODBDSLC14, and link to the ODBD Blog post

Visit the other girls to see their sentiment creations too:  America, Chris, Francie, NataliePatter and Sabrina.

Recipe:  Stamps:  ODBD - Scripture Collection 3, Vine Borders;  Ink:  VersaMark;  Paper:  Rich Razzleberry Textured, Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Basic Grey - Green at Heart;  Accessories:  Gold Embossing Powder, Razzleberry Ribbon, 1 inch punch, Sizzlet Leaves die, scalloped corner and edge punch, dimensionals, 1/2 pearls.
