Bible Verse Thursday Challenge - Rise & Shine!

Happy Thursday, everyone!!! Time for another Bible Verse Thursday Challenge over at Christian Paper Crafts. To give you a sneak peek of what's to come (on the 15th) for this month's Design Team Delights theme of "He Is Risen", this week's BVT challenge theme is "Rise & Shine"! Every spring, many Christians are getting ready to celebrate Resurrection Day (or Easter, for some)....where we focus on our Lord's ultimate sacrifice and gift for us. Not only did He die for our personal salvation, but according to God's law, this was the only way that we could be re-married to Him. I can only image how beautiful the marriage ceremony will be!!

Now, back to the challenge...there are MANY ways to approach this theme....please feel free to think outside of the box. Here are some options for this challenge (and remember, cards, layouts, altered items, etc are all welcome!):
Create a project focusing on Jesus, the cross, scriptures about His death, burial, or resurrection, our salvation;
On the less serious side, you could focus on other things that rise, like the sun, or the tide, or breads/pastries, etc.;
Now on the "shine" side of the challenge, use something shiny, or sunshine, or what happens when it's sunny, etc. Get the picture? Stretch the challenge any way you like, just let us know what your inspiration was.

I have also used the following challenges in the making of this card:
Gloria's done it again this week for
Sketch Tuesday at CPC.....see her awesome sketch to the left;
Color Monday Challenge at CPC ...the inspiration photo is full of beautiful blues and browns;
CCEE Challenge: swirls (there are swirls on the designer paper);
Pals Paper Arts: Color Challenge of Baja Breeze, Soft Suede and Crumb Cake.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!! God Bless!!!!

You have such lovely cards. I liked how you continued your bird them with the background paper and the bird/butterfly stamp.
