White-washed Door Inspiration Challenge

I know! I'm using this set again!!! This is a birthday card for my brother-in-law, Mike, who is desperately waiting for a Youth Pastor position to open up for him. At the same time, he is looking for a better job, even during this economic crisis. I chose this verse, because it is very fitting for his situation. When we desire something for our life, we are not commanded to "Ask".....then "Wait"! It takes action on our part! What I admire about Mike is that he doesn't let fear or doubt hold him back.....he's not afraid of change in order to make things happen. How many of us stay in our comfort zone because we're too afraid of failure? God considers faithfulness as righteousness......if we step out in faith and BELIEVE that we will receive what we ask....it is ours!


Now for the card details. This set, "Ask, Seek, Knock" is one of the new releases this month from Our Daily Bread Designs. The Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast today is to choose a photo from the Design Dazzle website. I chose the Garden Gate Wall Decor because I LOVED the white-washed look on the wooden gate! This card was also made in tribute of two awesome stampers: Roxie aka Rox71 was featured stamper last Sunday, so I chose this card to CASE. Also, I am dedicating this to Karen aka imastampin, because this is the very first time I used distressing on a card!!! I teasingly call Karen "Wolverine" because she uses her fingernails to distress her edges! So, I jumped clean out of my comfort zone and allowed myself to be a little rough around the edges!!!

Card Details: The door image was stamped on Kraft with Stazon Jet Brown, then "painted" with Craft White ink with an aquapainter. After it dried, the verse was then stamped with Stazon. I used a piece of corrugated cardboard for one of the layers. The dp is retired SU, called Outlaw. The key charm is made by 7Gypsies.

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a blessed weekend!!!

Angella, your designs are so wonderful---this is just such a great image, as are all the DB stamps! I appreciate your comments on my little creations---and no, I have never been a featured stamper!! I am just a little fish in a big sea of creativity! But thanks for the thought & suggestion! Truly, you made my day! Blessings to you!
