"The Shepherd"

Hi, everyone!  This week's Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast is to find an item from Limoges Box Collector.....so many different themes and styles of porcelain boxes to choose from.......I chose this rare/retired Sheep Resting In Meadow box.  I have created a simple, one layer sympathy card for my brother-in-law who lost his dear grandmother this week....I felt that "The Shepherd" set by Our Daily Bread designs was very fitting since the Lord's prayer is comforting in times of sorrow.

I have also used the Our Daily Bread designs Shining the Light "Animal" Challenge.  There is a new weekly challenge every Tuesday.....play along for a chance to win a gift certificate to the ODBD store!!

The lamb image from "The Shepherd" was stamped on an A2 sized white card, the grass was sponged over a scratch paper mask, the clouds were sponged over a punched scalloped circle, the image was colored with markers, then the scripture verse was stamped, using a Stamp-a-ma-jig stamp positioner in order to get it straight.  From start to finish, this card took less than 30 minutes.....for those who are speedy, it would have taken about ten minutes! :)

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

Oh that is the sweetest, cutest most charming card I've seen in a long time. Actually, I feel it is 'inspired' and certainly inspiring! (Do YOU think I like it?) LOL.
