Bible Verse Thursday Challenge at Christian Paper Crafts!

Happy Thursday, everyone! Time for another Bible Verse Thursday Challenge at Christian Paper Crafts! This week's challenge is to use a song or hymn as inspiration for your card, layout, or altered item. One of my all time favorite "Your Love, Oh Lord" by Third here if you'd like to hear the song. When this new "Faith" set by Our Daily Bread designs was released, I nearly flipped out since this scripture verse was included in the set!!!

Along with the "Faith" set, I have used the new "Single Butterfly" stamp and "Butterfly Die", also from Our Daily Bread designs, as sentiment panels. Using simple masking and my Stamp-a-ma-jig, I was able to separate the scripture into two panels easily. The designer paper is Basic Grey "Capella", the lace ribbon from Offray, the brown pearls are from Zva Creative, the border was punched with a Martha Stewart Doily Lace Punch, and there are several layers of "Pearl" Glimmer Mist for a finishing touch.

The general design is from Gloria's Sketch Tuesday Challenge this week from Christian Paper Crafts......I had to "tweak" it a bit and replaced the sentiment panel with ribbon to make it work.....good thing there aren't any challenge police to crack down on me!
I have also used the following challenges in the making of this card:
Fab -n-Funky: Anything Goes;
Creative Cottage: Something New (I'm using a new butterfly stamp and matching die;
Flutterby Wednesday: Open challenge as long as you have a butterfly, angel, fairy, etc.;
Little Red Wagon: Use a doily......okay, I couldn't find my doilies, so I settled for a Doily Lace punch.....does that make me a "challenge cheater"?!;
Papertake Weekly: Anything Goes;
Craft Your Passion: Anything Goes;
Die Cut Dreams: Quotes;
The Shabby Tea Room: Use 11 elements in your creation: 2 cardstock, 1 designer paper, 3 different stamps, lace, doily lace punch, butterfly die, pearls, and Glimmer Mist!!! :) That was fun!;
Stamptacular Sunday: Inspiration photo of wedding dress with muted creams and browns;
Drunken Stampers: use something new (butterfly stamp and die);
Speedy the Cat's Friends' Challenge: Use something new.
AI Factory: New Beginnings...use something new;
Dutch Dare: New Beginnings...once again, new stamps!;
Stampin' B's: use an old favorite (lace ribbon) and something new...stamps.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! God Bless!
