A Spring Sketch

Welcome to week 16 of ODBD's Shining the Light Challenge!  Today we have a sketch for you to try out!



Ok, I have no idea why this goofy picture stretched out wide like this, because it wasn't that way when I saved it!  But I think you get the idea :)

And here's what I made with the brand new set God Loves You from ODBD, I just love the Fuschia's in this months' sets!  I actually went out and bought a Fuschia for our hanging planter in front of our house just because of this set!  It's these colors too, white with deep pink.


I colored the fuschia with copic markers and then sponged the edges of the Blossom Nestie shape with Pixie Pink.  Then the cool parts come in .... I used a new CB folder from ODBD that's just beautiful and it comes with template cut out shapes too.  It's the Ornamental Iron Combo, and I used both the embossing folder and the cut outs on this card.  Then to give it an extra special touch I sprayed Metallic Pearl Glimmer Mist over the main image and the embossed layers to give it such beautiful sparkle!  Hopefully you can see it a little better below. 



Inside of the card I stamped a verse from the partner set to this one  From Me to You"The Lord Bless You and Keep You" from Numbers 6:24.  We have some friends who right now are going through a lot.  Their 5 year old daughter just had brain surgery this week to remove a tumor on her brain stem, and today they found out the pathology of the tumor is cancer, and their daughter will have 6 1/2 weeks of radiation treatment.  Can you just imagine?  Our youngest is just six so my heart is just heavy for them. I think this will be a good verse to send to them.  I know they are exhausted and that only God can sustain them and keep them these next weeks as they enter into treatment.  It's one of my favourite blessings in the Word too, and I pray it will be an encouragment to them.  They are amazing people of faith  - wow I just don't even know what else to say, pray for them would you?  The little girls name is Naomi.  

Alright...you can visit these fabulous girls to see their take on the sketch too...then please join us and create something with this layout too!

America, Chris, Francie, Natalie, Patter and Sabrina and some fabulous DT girls are joining us today too:  Sandee, Chrissy, Grace and Lorelie

I just started tearing up when you told of your friend's daughter, Naomi. It is hard to understand why anyone has to suffer, but especially the children. I pray they will be comforted and know that the Lord is near to them.
Your card is beautiful and so heartfelt...I love it!
