Bible Verse Thursday - For the Birds!!

Happy Thursday, everyone!!!! Time for another Bible Verse Thursday Challenge at Christian Paper Crafts! This week's challenge theme is "For The Birds".....your card, layout, or altered item can be nearly anything you wish, as long as there is a scripture verse and as long as there is at least one bird.....stamped, punched, designer paper, a verse mentioning birds, and so on.

Since I am pretty much obsessed with Stampin' Up's new Cherry Cobbler red, I decided to use "Sing For Joy" from Our Daily Bread designs and create a cardinal birthday card for my dad. Okay, so the cardinal is a bit dark, but I know Dad won't mind! The designer paper is Basic Grey "Wassail", the ribbon and corduroy brads are Stampin Up, and the "out of the box" scene was cut out with a Spellbinders Labels Fifteen.

Along with Bible Verse Thursday, I have also used the following challenges in the making of this card:
Creative Card Crew: Anything Goes;
Splitcoast's Technique Lover's Challenge: Sponging (sponged the edges of the dsp, plus stenciled the inside of the Spellbinder die);
Stampin' Sisters in Christ: Encouragement, cheerful, uplifting card;
AI Factory: Anything Goes.

Thanks sooooo much for stopping by today! Stay the next day or so, I want to show off some "Happy Mail" I got today!!!!!

Stay warm and God Bless!!!!
