Bible Verse Thursday Cross Challenge


Hi everyone! Welcome to my second week as challenge hostess for Bible Verse Thursday at Christian Paper Crafts! I never realized how fun it would be to be a challenge hostess.....I love it!!! This week's challenge is to incorporate a cross in your project....either embellies, stamps, ribbons, etc......or get creative....make a cross-shaped card!!! Oooh, I'll have to remember that for later!!

While I was designing this card, I thought I may as well incorporate a couple of other challenges as well. Janette's Color Monday Challenge at CPC was to use Always Artichoke, Mellow Moss, and Perfect Plum. This dsp from Memory Box, called "Poppyfinch" was perfect for this challenge! I also used Roxie's Sketch Challenge from Splitcoast Stampers.
The stamp set I used is "Jesus" from Our Daily Bread Designs. I think this image of Jesus is so peaceful and beautiful! The gold frame is actually from a package of place-card frames I found at Michael's on clearance.....I KNEW I would find a use for them!!! I did take the backing off since I didn't need the pop-out cardboard stand. The verse was stamped on a Labels Four die-cut which I trimmed down to make a tag. Added paper piercing, sponging, satin ribbon, gold brads, and a gold cross charm.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a blessed day!!!
