BVT90 Beautiful!

Hello, everyone! Better late than never, I would like to share a card which I made for last week's Bible Verse Thursday Challenge at Christian Paper Crafts....the theme was "Beautiful". (Card deets below.)

Speaking of Christian Paper Crafts....have you heard the news? The community site is now a Members Only site, in order to provide a safe environment for conversations, plus NO SPAMMERS! There are several levels of membership, with the lowest being $9.95 per year. So that I don't mess up, please see the details of the memberships HERE. If you would like to participate in the Bible study or read the Devotionals, that is still free to the public. All of the members and DT there are wonderful Christian ladies.....we would love to fellowship with you as well!!
Along with the Bible Verse Thursday Challenge, I have also used Gloria's awesome Sketch Tuesday Challenge from last week for the layout. Gloria provides a brand new sketch for us each Tuesday! Hope you decide to join us....we have challenges at Christian Paper Crafts every day except Sunday! Plus we have rotating Scrapbooking Challenges all month long as well......AND every third Thursday of the month is Praise and Paper Night.....a "virtual stamping night" full of fun!!
Card details: The background Cool Caribbean cardstock was embossed with Our Daily Bread designs' "Butterfly Embossing Plate" and I chose to use the de-bossed side for a more crisp image. The image panels were clear embossed using the "Faith" set and Ranger Clear Embossing Powder. Cool Caribbean and Chocolate Chip ink were then sponged over the embossing, then the ink was wiped off of the embossed images.....this the "Embossing Resist" technique. The button is Basic Grey, the pearls are by Zva Creative, and the Scrapbooking Thread by Making Memories. In order to photograph the embossed background, the "Pearl" Glimmer Mist is not visible, but is shimmery in the real!

My next card is one I made earlier this month for a "Spinner Card Tutorial" on Our Daily Bread designs' blog........check out the tutorial here. Card details:The background scene was embellished with the Meadow and Peony Pink Flower Soft blends and Zva Creative Pearls in the flower centers and panel corners. The scripture stamp is from another new release this month, the "Faith" set, the paper is by Prima, and the twill ribbon was tied with a Bow Easy.

Here is a close up of the "Butterfly Single Stamp", cut out with the custom "Butterfly Die" and embellished with Marigold Flower Soft.

Thanks for stopping by! Come back Thursday morning for a new Bible Verse Thursday Challenge, combined with a new Stamping In Time: On Assignment Challenge by Our Daily Bread designs. Plus......I will announce the blog candy winner from the "March of the Snowmen" hop!
God Bless!!
