Bible Verse Thursday, Stamping in Time, Shining the Light

Happy Thursday, everyone!! Here comes another challenge combo!

Today at
Christian Paper Crafts, the Bible Verse Thursday Challenge theme is "Harvest". Use any scripture verse relating to harvesting....OR use an image relating to Harvest time plus a scripture verse to go with it.

I have combined several sets from
Our Daily Bread designs for my sample today. The sparrow is from "He watches Me", the wheat is from "Our Daily Bread", and the scripture is from "Harvest Blessings". After stamping the wheat multiple times, I colored the background with sponge daubers, then stamped another row of wheat and the sparrow to pop up for dimension. The gold May Arts Ribbon was tied with a Bow Easy, topped with a Basic Grey button. The designer paper is Memory Box; instead of using pearls, I embellished with "Flame" dew drops instead. Though it is extremely camera shy, there are about six layers of "Irridescent Gold" Glimmer Mist.

Also today is the beginning of the next Our Daily Bread designs'
Stamping In Time: On Assignment Challenge, which will be open for two weeks. This week's guest hostess is Mary Marsh.....Mary has challenge us to use any ODBD bird image plus design your project around a season....I chose fall/autumn for my season. Remember, you must use ODBD stamps as your primary focal point to play in this challenge. Please see all of the details on how to win $ toward ODBD stamps on the ODBD blog post HERE.

Please visit these lovely ladies, who have shared samples for this challenge:


Also, I have combined Saturday's Shining The Light Challenge, to use an image repeatedly....the wheat stamp was used many times in the making of the wheat field! You still have one more day to play in this challenge, however, there will be a brand new Shining the Light Challenge first thing Saturday morning....with another chance to win!!

I have also used the following challenges in the making of this card:
Jennipher's Sketch Tuesday Challenge at Christian Paper Crafts;
Gingersnap Creations: 3-dimensional;
The Pink Elephant: Ribbon and sparkles;
Stamptacular Sunday: Buttons and Bows;
All Sorts Challenge: paper piercing or paper piecing;
Creative Card Crew: sparkle and shine;

Aud Sentiments Challenge: "Anything goes" sentiment.

Hi Angie~

What a beautiful card! I just love the coloring! It is beautiful, and beautifully done!

I love the Psalms! This card is indeed good news! And, it is true! I don't know if you have seen the harvest photos on
Dawn L's blog...but their land is yielding its harvest indeed! Amen to that!

Back to your card! I love the beautiful dp you used in the bg of the card, the colors are so rich and earthy...and your bow is perfect! I love that button treatment. (Curious about that!)

I just adore everything about this card...including the person who made it!

He IS Able,
Traci S.
