A Light For My Path

Last chance....Blog Candy HERE!

Last night I was speaking at a Women's Event in a town near ours, but my husband was celebrating our High School Graduates at our Grad Night.  These kids in grade 12 have been with us since grade 7, so I was a little sad to have missed the celebration.  But this week's ODBD Challenge fits perfectly with the Grad Theme.  The Challenge Team is challenging you to create a Graduation Card or gift.

I just love this ODBD set, it's one of my favourites.  It's called Light of the World, it just speaks to me.  I have a thing for Lighthouses.  I've probably mentioned this before, but the building we do our Youth Ministry in is called The Lighthouse.  Perfect name don't you think?  I am so grateful that HE is the Light for my path. 

For this card I colored the scene with my Prismacolor Pencils.  I paired it with some SEI Designer paper (Sweet Perfume Pearl), SEI Happy Day, and Bermuda Bay blue-green.  I scored the Bermuda cardstock on the horizontal in the background to continue that feeling of the horizon.  This Dotted Wave Border punch is perfect for that wavy feeling to isn't it?   And look at my sweet ships-wheel charm!  From my even sweeter Team Mate America!  Thanks girly!

I cut apart the verse for the sentiment and pieced it together to fit better in the space. 
Alright now you're invited into the challenge for Grad Cards or Projects.  To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a prize, a $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! Entries for the prize must be submitted by Thursday, May 13. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday. While it is not required to use Our Daily Bread Designs images and sentiments on your creations, we would love to see them if you have them.
