Gift of God!

Woo Hoo! It's Saturday! I was up late working on a project, got totally stuck, so I headed to Splitcoast to check out the Inspiration Challenge. I'm so happy that I did, because I just made a card for it in 45 minutes! For me, that is like Speedy Gonzales!!! The Inspiration Challenge is to find inspiration from the Wallpaper Collective....I found this awesome pine cone wallpaper, and had four colors to choose from. I chose the navy blue against what resembled Sahara Sand.

I stamped the single pine cone image from "Sacred Season" in Night of Navy, to create the background, and chose the scripture verse from the coordinating set, "Gift of God", both from Our Daily Bread designs. After adding sponging, paper piercing, the sentiment panel which was cut from a Spellbinders Mega Oval Die, and SU denim ribbon (tied with a Bow Easy), I used a Glitter Pen to accent the snow a bit. This is very clean and simple for me, but I had fun making it "just because" and I kinda like it!

I have also used the following challenges for this card:
Speedy the Cat's Friends' Challenge: Create a fall or winter card;
Freshly Brewed Challenges: Anything goes during November!;
Papertake Weekly: Anything goes plus a bit of bling!

Card 'Ingredients':
Our Daily Bread designs 'Sacred Season' and 'Gift of God';
Cardstock: SU Night of Navy, Sahara Sand, and Whisper White;
Ink: SU Night of Navy and Sahara Sand;
Accessories: Bow Easy, Spellbinders Mega Oval die, Zva Creative Pearls, SU Denim ribbon, paper piercer and template, sponge dauber, foam tape, Glitter Pen.
Size: 5-1/2 x 5-1/2.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a very blessed weekend!!!
