Bible Verse Thursday / Stamping In Time Combo!!

Happy Thursday, everyone!! This week I have combined the Bible Verse Thursday Challenge from Christian Paper Crafts with the Stamping In Time: On Assignment Challenge with Our Daily Bread designs. I just love to combine challenges, don't you?

Since this is the last week for Breast Cancer Awareness month, this week's theme for Bible Verse Thursday is to create something pink, as long as it has a scripture verse. It doesn't have to be totally pink, but pink should be your primary focus for your card, layout, or altered item. This week I thought I would cause everyone to faint and create a layout! My Aunt Ruth lost her battle with cancer nearly two years ago, and I wanted to pay tribute to one of my favorite "Angels"! Since I knew I wanted to create a layout, I also used a few of the monthly scrapbook challenges at Christian Paper challenge is called "Copy That", where you get your inspiration from an ad copy provided (which inspired the sideways title); the Stamper's Delight challenge is to stamp on your designer paper; the Simple Blueprints for Scrapbooking is a sketch layout, which I flipped on it's side.

Now, on to the Stamping In Time: On Assignment Challenge with Our Daily Bread designs! This week Betty is challenging us to use our favorite embellishment on our project, along with our ODBD stamps. My three very fave embellies are Zva Creative Pearls, Glimmer Mist, and May Arts Satin Ribbon.....I used pearls and lots of "Pearl" Glimmer Mist on this layout. You have two week to submit for the challenge for a chance to win $ toward ODBD stamps....upload a direct link for your project HERE.

Check out the gorgeous samples for this challenge:

We hope you join us.....can't wait to see your submissions!!!!

Here are the supplies I used for the layout:
Stamps: Our Daily Bread designs "Missing You" and "Angel";
Cardstock: Stampin Up Whisper White and Old Olive;
Designer Paper: Prima "Purple Memory"; Memory Box "Gossamer" for the Angel's gown;
Ink: Stazon Jet Black, Chocolate Chip for sponging, Blush Blossom and Creamy Caramel (Angel);
Accessories: "Pearl" Glimmer Mist(on dsp, Prima Flower and letters), Chipboard letters by Pressed Petals, Zva Creative Pearls, Smooch paint (angel's wings).

I have also incorporated the following challenges from around blog-land this week:
Papertake Weekly: Sparkly and bright (Smooch and Glimmer Mist, plus the paper is truly hot pink, but couldn't get a good photo!);
Sweet Stampin Challenge Blog: Anything but a card.
C.R.A.F.T. challenge: monochromatic.

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

Angie, this is wonderful! It is a wonderful tribute to a wonderful lady. I lost my aunt, too, to cancer a few years ago. She truly lived well, laughed often, and loved much! Beautifully done!

Hi Angie
This is such a lovely layout, what a wonderful way to create a special memory of someone important to you. I love the colours you have used, the paper is beautiful and the flowers and pearls add the perfect touch. The ODBD stamps are just beautiful too. Such a special layout.
Love Lee-Anne
